My kids are now 16 and 14. What do most teenagers want? yep, money. I bought 48 plastic easter eggs and filled each one with dollar bills and coins. I also put a few 5.00 and 10.00. Then I hid them outside and inside the house and the kids had such a great time. They were of course on a race to see who found the most eggs, but also to see who found the most money. We even had one egg that had 1 penny in it. We had a good time and even after, the kids thanked me for such great fun!
ps. I figured I filled the eggs with the same amount of money that I would have spent on buying baskets and filling them up!

Last year we got together with some friends and we had kids ranging in age from 2-16. We divided up the kids by age with the little ones getting candy and child safe toys, and for the older kids we used (in the eggs) candy, money, and some small items like the tiny hair clips. We also had some bigger prizes that we numbered and put a slip of paper with the number in the eggs. The older kids had a blast at the end when we went through the prizes and called out the numbers.
