If you celebrate Easter, you know that dyeing eggs is a rite of passage for every kid.
But what if you have an egg allergy?
Since Little Guy has food allergies to eggs, dairy, sesame, tree nuts and peanuts, we've put a few holiday traditions to the side. But dyeing eggs is still a tradition we can celebrate because of EggNots!
In past years, I bought look-alike eggs at local craft stores that were made of materials like cardboard. However, they were very light and didn't feel at all like real eggs.
This is the first year we've tried EggNots, and I was amazed how much they looked and felt like real eggs. From the egg carton to the weight of the eggs (about as heavy as real eggs), they are just like the real thing!
The secret? EggNots are a dyeable ceramic product. The ceramic material makes them look and feel so realistic.
Little Gal even tried to crack one!
Now, this brings up another point. Just be sure to communicate to your child with an egg allergy that these are NOT real eggs.
Children with an egg allergy need to know that they are safe for them to touch and use. It's something I was sure to stress to Little Guy before he even touched them because they can easily be mistaken for real eggs.
Okay, onto the fun.
Just take a look at this crazy table! We didn't have newspaper, so we lined our table with old catalogs and flyers.
I gave the kiddos a few options for decorating including natural dyes like Color Garden and India Tree. But you know what they loved best? Using a small paint brush to cover the eggs with glitter paint!
Aren't they just vibrant and beautiful?
There are so many ways you can decorate Easter eggs. From natural dyes to paint, or markers and stickers.
However you do it, it's all about spending time together as family, laughing, talking and sharing in special moments - food allergies or not.
