Last year, I made some egg shakers for my son that I included in his Easter basket. I bought clear eggs from Dollar Tree and filled each of them with various things (Salt, dry oatmeal, dry grits, buttons, one big rock, small pebbles). To prevent the smaller pieces from falling out of the tiny holes in the eggs, I hot glued the holes from the inside. The eggs have been a hit, both last year and now. These would be great for most ages!

I hope that you were able to get some unique ideas that you can include in your child’s Easter basket this year! Please share any ideas that you have used in the past!
