- Take a picture with the Easter Bunny

What Can I Fill a Baby’s Easter Eggs With?
Honestly, you don’t have to put anything in them.
Babies just love to play with the eggs in general. You can tape them together so they don’t come apart and let them enjoy some playtime.
You could also turn them into shakers. If your baby is older 6+ you could fill them with cereal, puffs, goldfish, etc.
