  1. Great ideas Karen:) My boys would love the bunny baskets. I will have to go down to our local Hobbycraft:)

  2. Looks like your girls are having a lot of fun finding the eggs and love the idea of doing a chocolate-free egg hunt – will have to try this with my girls 🙂

    Great idea. Nice being able to recycle the eggs too. We’ve use them in the past, to put clues in, to find the final hidden prize. It really is the hunting that the children enjoy ( and some chocolate,of course). #CountryKids

    This is a great idea, there’s always so much chocolate being handed out on Easter Sunday that it could last a year round (if they didn’t scoff it so quickly). I love the idea of inedible treats rather than chocolate, it’s fab that you found a way to do an Easter Egg hunt without the copious amounts of chocolate involved. The girls look so pleased to have found all the different eggs with hidden treats inside! Thanks for linking up with me on #CountryKids

  5. What a fantastic idea! It is definitely easy to have too much chocolate over Easter. I’m sure the kids love all the little bits and pieces in the eggs just as much as chocolate.

  6. Those Dinosaur eggs are a genius idea, am going to have to invest in those I think #CountryKids

  7. Great ideas for filling them up and I love the look of those dinosaur eggs.

  8. The children really do get too much chocolate over easter. These are a great idea. #CountryKids

  9. Fab idea. I will be doing this next year as the amount of chocolate my girls have eaten already is obscene! #countrykids

      I can thoroughly recommend – so much better to reduce the mountain of chocolate, and the joy from hunting for eggs in itself was great.

    What a fantastic idea. We don’t like the girls having too much chocolate so this year they got some little eggs, one big egg and then a book and a board game. We will all play the board game later! Hope you have a lovely Easter #sundaystars

    I love these ideas, a nice way to do a hunt without all the chocolate! Happy Easter! #SundayStars

  12. I love this idea. Thinking back to my own childhood easter’s, I got so much chocolate it lasted me till the summer holidays. I don’t want Mini R to be the same and i’m happy that some people bought him books and stuff this year. We bought him a couple of new toys instead of chocolate….alternatively, my father in law bought him a 1kg easter egg….which 21mo needs a 1kg easter egg is beyond me! #sundaystars

      We had a ridiculous amount the last year that I think we ended up throwing some away. Small children really don’t need to be given huge amounts of chocolate do they?!

  13. That’s such a great idea – my daughter did an easter egg hunt with my nephew today and they had almost as much fun finding the eggs as getting to eat a bit. The number they found (at a vaguely sensible amount per day) would keep them going for ages! #countrykids

    • stoppingattwo says:

      Yes! My girls really enjoyed the hunt and I think it was a nicer surprise to find things other than chocolate in their eggs!

  14. Toys are always a better idea! Today my son has eaten so much chocolate from my in-laws! Toys stays and can be enjoyed longer. #countrykids

  15. I love this idea…the reusable eggs look brilliant (I think my son would love the dinosaur ones). My son is young enough at the moment to not eat all the chocolate he has been given (or that he found – we used chocolate bunnies for the hunt) but I don’t think that will be the same next year so I’ll make a note of these…or try to pick some up now while they are still in stock. Thanks for hosting this week’s #sundaystars

      The eggs are a great idea so see if you can pick them up reduced now (and then don’t put them somewhere so safe that you have lost them by the time next Easter arrives!)

  16. Pinkoddy says:

    Oh what a really good idea! And because it is not edible I can start preparing for next year early!

  17. Great idea! Some parents seem to go overboard with egg buying these days so I think its a great idea to do something that isn’t chocolate related. I didn’t go mad for my son, just one egg and some smaller ones I hid round the house but you should have seen some of the photos on facebook. Some kids got 10 eggs from parents alone! #sundaystars

    Great idea! We did a chocolate easter egg hunt this year as it was our first for our little one, but I have noticed more and more of these plastic fillable eggs popping up in shops and supermarkets here and there. They are definitely a great way to keep the fun and magic of an easter egg hunt, but without the chocolate overload! Perhaps one for us for next year 😉 Emily #SundayStars

    This is such a good idea! Kids get far too much chocolate at easter. We try to stick to just some little ones for an egg hunt and one slightly larger one each but the relatives give loads (which I hide and make into chocolate crispie cakes over the course of the year!) #sundaystars

  20. This is a great idea to avoid the chocolate overload! #sundaystars

  21. Crummy Mummy says:

    This is an interesting slant on traditional chocolate eggs and one I wouldn’t have thought of! #sundaystars

  22. Silly Mummy says:

    We did this too! We just put the little chicks you can get in ours as my girls are so young (& currently obsessed with those little chicks), but will probably do it with more varied contents in future. #Sundaystars

    • stoppingattwo says:

      Oooh, I LOVE the idea of using the chicks. My girls love those, but I just hot glued them onto the Easter bonnet so there is no way I can rescue them! Thanks for the idea 🙂

  23. Fantastic idea – definitely because they have far too much chocolate as it is at Easter. #sundaystars xx

    • stoppingattwo says:

      Yep, the chocolate mountain doesn’t seem to be going down very fast (even with my secret help)

  24. Mrs H says:

    I love this idea. Little Miss H always gets given an obscene amount of chocolate at Easter too. I love your ideas for filling the plastic eggs. And those dinosaur eggs look very cool. Little Miss H is obsessed with dinosaurs and would love them. Thanks for hosting #SundaysStars honey. Sorry it had taken me so long to comment. Hugs Lucy xxxx

      I can thoroughly recommend a chocolate-free egg hunt – mine still had far too much this Easter!
