Easter isn’t about chocolate bunnies for us, its about celebrating with family - similarly how important Thanksgiving is to American families. For me, celebrating with my own young family means the tradition of colouring real eggs and hiding them as well a visit from the Easter Bunny and a wonderful lunch. With Easter right around the corner, here are some cute picks to get your little ones excited about more than just candy.
My son loves decorating eggs and so will you with these wonderful plant-based egg dyes. Infuse your Easter eggs with festive, natural hues of yellow, orange, lavender, red and green. You can use them on brown or white eggs and eat them once dyed. Take it a step further and try egg dying of a more traditional nature with this fun, non-toxic Ukrainian dying kit. A fantastic way to introduce children to the art of pysanky (egg artistry). It’s easy to get started as the kit includes everything needed to transform eggs into beautiful works of art that will last beyond one Easter.
One of my favourite ways to add a little inexpensive flare to any table setting is with flowers. For Easter, tulips and daffodils are the blooms to call upon arranged in these recycled glass vases. Made in Spain, they look pretty with or without flowers. Simple, understated and elegant.
If you are buying chocolate Easter Eggs, make sure you choose organic ones. I was so pleased to discover Green & Blacks Easter collection in the UK recently. Try looking for Fair Trade Certified as well. Sjaaks have a fantastic range of Fair Trade and organic chocolate eggs, bunnies and more.
