Ideas for a Fun Gluten Free Easter Egg Hunt
Gift Baskets: When my sons where younger, I would put together an Easter basket of small dollar-store toys to give them as their gift. Sunglasses, small colouring books, mini cars, and some gluten free candy would keep them happy for hours.
Plastic Hollow Eggs: Many stores sell plastic Easter eggs that come apart and can be filled with small items. I have used these for my Easter egg hunt in the past, and it's great with small children because the eggs are big enough to be found easily. Also, it takes them forever to open each one and discover what's inside. Anything from candy to little figurines, stickers or stamps could be put inside. This year my son is going to a Lego hunt, and those little guys would be perfect to put in the eggs.
Make Your Own: I made some of my own Easter candy this year, that I'm putting in little baskets along with my son's clues for his hunt. I bought some gluten free chocolate, melted it, and poured it into silicone molds. Once cooled, I popped them out and done!
