A few fun ideas on what to fill your eggs with

Fill each Easter countdown egg with a fun gift to be cracked open each day. Include simple pom poms chicks for kids, bells, money, and/or sweets. Small notes of encouragement would be great to include for a friend. Single out one egg as special by filling it with a fun outing (a pedicure perhaps!). Fill the eggs with sweet love notes and special surprises for a husband. Encouragement for a coworker, sweet Easter memories for a mom – anything that can fit inside of your Easter countdown egg will do!
