    my daughter one year, did a mystery hunt for her boys. little clues in balloons that had to be burst. then small cards to give a free hug, or a small toy, or even a clue to more balloons. sort of a pirates treasure hunt, rather than an easter egg hunt. they boys had a great time, but it was a lot of work for my daughter to set it up. marie.

    My daughter is only 23 months but I like that idea. She loves concept of eggs. So far I have found painting ones at big w and some candy ones but I'm not fan of junk food!!

    We were dairy free last Easter and did Sweet William bunnies, those non-edible eggs from Woolies and gave our son a little present rather than an Easter egg. For an egg hunt you could also use plastic eggs that open up so you can put fruit (sultanas, grapes, etc) inside, to reduce the sugar/junk overload.

    Sweet Williams choc is dairy free, they are sold in most supermarkets & have a pack of little bunnies at easter. This pack http://www.dairyfreebaby.me.uk/wp-co...-241967067.jpg is about $15 &is usually at big w and selected supermarkets, i havent seen it everywhere, whereas the sweet william bunnies are more common. Lindt dark bunnies (not milk, dark only) are dairy free also. You can also get little plastic eggs at spotlight,you can open them & put little gifts inside, for my kids they more enjoy the thrill of the hunt, lol, so I dont bother puttinf anythkng

    ... whoops, sorry. We dont usually put anything inside the eggs, they just find them and put them in their little basket, and then maybe i have a pack sweet william bunnies shared between them.

    Apparently Aldi sell dairy free chocolate, although i had a look at my local store today and they don't stock it.
    The cruelty free shop stocks a range of dairy free easter eggs but if you made an order now it obviously wouldn't arrive until after easter.
    I'm just giving my kids presents or maybe money. I don't know, i haven't really thought about it and it's only a few days away really.

    We got moo free eggs from woolworths and I bought mini dark eggs from the chocolate box online for the egg Hunt.

    Woolies and Coles have a lot of dairy free. Lindt dark bunnies are dairy free too.
