1. Lego pieces
Open up a Lego set (one with fewer pieces will work best), divide up the pieces among eggs of the same color, and hide around the house (or outside!).
Your kid will thank you for color coding later when she tries to build the set.
2. Puzzle pieces
Same idea as above but be sure the pieces are small enough to fit inside the eggs without bending. Nobody likes bent puzzle pieces. Nobody.
(If you’re really crafty, make your own puzzle. Here’s how.)
3. Jelly beans
An Easter staple. Starburst, Jolly Rancher, and Jelly Belly are choice.
Get Bubblicious, Hubba Bubba, Double Bubble, Bubble Yum…
Basically anything with “Bubb” in the name. Also, Bazooka.
14. Temporary tattoos
Besides helping your kid look tough, they’re also good for decorating hardboiled Easter eggs. Directions here.
17. Those things that grow when you put them in water.
18. Hair accessories and jewelry
Clips, scrunchies, rings, earrings, and bracelets.
22. Nerf darts and balls
With how easy they are to lose, you can never have enough.
23. Homemade vouchers
