Cracking open a plastic Easter egg to find the surprise hidden inside can be the highlight of any child's holiday celebration. While candy is the traditional Easter treat found inside plastic eggs, small toys are another option for stashing in baskets or hiding for egg hunts on the spring holiday. Small toys will last long after the sugary Easter treats are gone and, unlike candy, toys will not melt or spoil if left too long encased in a plastic egg.

Stamps and Stickers
Hide rubber stamps and stickers that children can use to decorate their artwork in plastic Easter eggs. Rubber stamps feature everything from holiday and spring designs like flowers and buzzing bees to cars and fun sayings. Stickers provide kids with more fun craft projects. They can create a masterpiece using just the stickers or use them in combination with stamps and other art supplies.
