Easter is unpredictable.
Let’s put it this way: No one planned for little Susie to eat the chocolates before you could fill the eggs. No one even thought about looking for the egg casings before you sat down to fill them. No one remembered to put the bag of chocolates in the fridge. And let’s face it: not all kids like chocolate – plus, it isn’t ‘healthy’.
Anyway, here are 15 easy, relatively cheap last minute Easter Egg fillers that are unique. Put on your Super Mom or Dad or Grandparent or Friend or… Person mask, because we are about to make Easter AMAZING.
