Help! Need Ideas!

So growing up, we didn't really get too much into the whole Easter bunny thing. My parents always got us a chocolate bunny or something but we more focused on the real reason for Easter, Jesus Christ. I do not feel at all like I missed out!

My husband and I have decided to focus on the real reason for Easter, but that there was nothing wrong with having fun with Easter either. So I got some eggs for my 9 month old, but my problem is, What do you put in Easter eggs for a 9 month old?? You can't really do chocolate or candy...Well I could but then I would just have to eat it for

Anyone have any ideas?? Any help would be appreciated! 

Oh! And we did have an Easter egg hunt this morning....Meaning my daughter threw the Easter eggs all over and I was hunting to find all 12! Finally found them all! 


  1. I have a 10 month old and we are having the same dilemma. I was thinking about making a few finger puppets to put inside a few of them and also a couple other small toys. My daughter also loves puffed kamut and brown rice puffs (you could also do popped corn. They make a cool sound inside the egg and are not dangerous if the egg pops open and she happens to eat a few. I'm going to fill a few eggs with a handful of each so she can enjoy a snack.

  2. Thanks for the suggestion Ellie! We didn't end up doing much for her since her grandparents came in for a visit the Monday after and she was spoiled with goodies from them, cousins, great grandparents, and aunts and uncles! Not to mention the goodies she got from her grandparents and aunt that live close by and a few people at church! She got so many clothes, snacks and toys!!


I love comments and read each one!
