Don't get me wrong, the Easter bunny always brings plenty of chocolate and other sugary treats to the little boys in this house. But Easter doesn't have to be all about the candy. Check out these sugar-free ideas:
Confetti Eggs - These clever, hand-crafted eggs made with repurposed egg shells are filled with colorful confetti and sealed with tissue paper. All ingredients are 100% biodegradable - even the glue and glitter are homemade from natural ingredients. Perfect for an eco-friendly Easter party!
Dinosaur Bath Egg - What better way to encourage a kid to jump in the bath than to give them a fizzy dinosaur egg to play with? This extra large bath egg is handmade with natural ingredients including moisturizing Emu oil from Kaylala's family farm of free-range Emus, french green clay and organic vanilla. Best of all, there's a dinosaur sponge surprise inside!
High Flying Easter Bunny - Support handmade with a plush Easter Bunny from Etsy! This one is sewn out of cotton and anti-pill fleece (not organic - but still handmade!) with no removable parts, making it safe for infants. If he doesn't suit your fancy, check out Inhabitot's list of 7 Best Eco-Friendly Easter Bunnies from Etsy. There are some cute ones for sure!
More sweet but sugar-free ideas:
- Books: chapter books, comic books, coloring books
- Eco-friendly craft supplies (Inhabitots has a nice list)
- Felted Easter eggs (here's a little round-up I did last year)
- Wooden Easter eggs - available on Etsy of course!
