Alternative Easter Eggs

Alternative Easter Eggs

Let’s face it, most kids love chocolate but a lot of parents don’t want their kids to eat copious amounts of it.

Let’s also face it, that when you give young children Easter Eggs, there’s a good chance they will be eaten slying in the evening by parents!

So, if you are a parent, aunt, uncle, godparent, grandparent, neighbour or friend, maybe it’s worth considering giving the children in your lives some non-chocolate Easter eggs this Easter. Before you completely rule it out, check out these cool, alternative eggs which children love.

Hatching Eggs

These are eggs that you put into a bowl of water and over a period of about 48 hours, the shell will start to crack as a plastic animal grows inside. Usually there’s great excitement as your child waits and watches for their egg to hatch so they can see what animal they have. Once the animal is fully grown, it will have emerged from the shell and can be played with. I stock dinosaur ones. They are similar enough to the size of a real hen egg.

Wooden Eggs

For younger children, there’s the option of giving them some wooden play food eggs. These come in eggs boxes of 4 and can be split open to reveal the white and yolk. Then closed again (they are velcro) for the next time your child wants to serve up eggs.

Wooden Egg Shakers

These egg shakers are perfect for little hands to shake to music to to make their own music to. They are available in four different colours.

Of course, you don’t have to stick with an egg shaped gift. There’s tons of really nice, affordable toys you can choose to give from my website.

So, whether your child is lactose intolerant or you just don’t want to serve up an extra portion of chocolate this Easter, you can see that there’s lots of alternative eggs to choose from.

Have a happy Easter,
