Phew, that was a lot! Just make sure the egg pickers are getting age appropriate Easter Egg Fillers. You don’t want to worry about little ones choking because they put something in their mouths they shouldn’t have. A good rule of thumb: If it can fit inside the tube of a toilet paper roll then it’s too small for tiny humans. If you still need Easter eggs or have some fillers that are just a tiny bit too big for the typical  Easter eggs, try this multi-sized egg pack! Last minute shopper? Try these prefilled eggsHappy Easter!
