I recently received the FAAN spring newsletter and I want to share a few of their allergy free Easter tips. Despite the chocolate and eggs, your kids can have a safe, fun Easter. Here are a few of my favorite tips that FAAN offers:
1. Instead of decorating real eggs, paint, decoupage or bead wooden eggs available at craft stores or online. Plastic eggs can also be decorated using stickers, ribbons and permanent markers.
2. Fill baskets with small toys, cars, dolls, crayons or mini stuffed animals, instead of putting the focus on food.
3. Organize an Easter egg hunt using plastic eggs. Fill them with coins or stickers or even coupons for activities such as roller skating or movies, instead of candy.
These are all great tips! If you can have eggs or dairy but not nuts, please also visit Vermont Nut-Free Chocolate for a beautiful selection of nut-free Easter-themed chocolates and nut-free jelly beans.
Where do some of you go for dairy and egg-free Easter or Passover-themed treats? If you've got some good recommendations, we'd love to hear them.
