Decorating Easter eggs and participating in all of the fun festivities of the season can be difficult for families with allergies or dietary needs. Luckily, there are some amazing options for Easter egg decorating when it comes to finding vegan and allergy friendly products.
What if I told you it was possible to participate in Easter egg decorating if your child is vegan or has allergies to eggs or dyes? Not only are these options great for allergy friendly families, it is perfect for anyone who is looking for healthier and more natural alternatives to Easter egg decorating without having to be excluded from participating in these activities.
When I started making my own play dough, I was looking for plant-based food coloring that was safe and healthy for my kids to handle with their precious little hands and growing bodies. I found this vegan friendly, kosher friendly, plant-based food coloring set I love to use for not only homemade play dough and egg decorating, but for all of my baking needs! I know our kids love those colorful birthday cakes right?
Here are some egg-celent alternatives to real chicken eggs that can be dyed and decorated for Easter. I am not a vegan but I still love the idea of these fake eggs because you can keep them for years to come, gift them, or use them to decorate for holidays and parties.
