So as the title says, how much per child? I just spent $50 between 2 kids and didn't get a huge amount. I don't buy cheap chocolate though, no one will eat it so it just gets thrown out.
Most is just plain hollow chocolate? total rip off...

Not much at all this year...
I bag of small cadbury plain eggs for a hunt $6
2 x bunny ears from Coles $6
2 x maxwell williams egg cups $5
DH & I don't buy each other anything because we don't like chocolate ()
But I agree, a lot of the stuff I've seen is overpriced.

We don't spend anything on Easter.

oh and I'd love to know ages of kids as a 2yo will eat and want a lot less that an 8 yo.

About $20. That includes a little bag of solid eggs for the daycare kids. Ds doesn't eat much chocolate

I just bought 4 x 12 Cadbury eggs in the carton for the egg hunt ( 3 kids - my 2 neices doing it with us ) which is plenty for 2 year old DS , he will probably eat 2 or 3 and we get the rest!
I also got Rex the talking Toy Story toy for $48 on sale at Big W as his Easter present , I bought a present rather than more eggs as he won't eat them anyway and his birthday is not until October! So all up for DS about $70

This year we spent $20 on eggs for my 8yr old DS (4 bags of mini Cadbury eggs which was $10, 1 bag of maletesers eggs for $4 and 2 bags of Angry birds mini eggs for $6) and $4 on a small wire basket to collect them in.
Thats it. Im sick of buying big eggs that DS picks at and then there is little bits of chocolate all over the place or a bowl of broken chocolate bits in the fridge for days, so this year we decided to buy all mini eggs that can be put in his mouth one at a time in one go and its over and done with.
ETA: We bought DS 6yr old niece a $6 Humpty egg and a $3 bag of small eggs.....DPs sister said that is too much as it is cos his niece doesnt really like chocolate.

I am boycotting Easter this year as I can't eat any fat at the moment. DP doesn't like chocolate and DS can take it or leave it. Bah humbug.
Last year I spent about $20 on one Lindt bunny and a few smaller eggs. I ate about $19.70 worth
