Allergy-Free Alternatives to Eggs at Easter

With egg allergies being among the top for kids today, it’s time to think outside of the traditional egg and try one of these alternatives. The following is a list of Easter-themed egg options, all egg-free, that will keep kids crafting and using their creativity.

Allergy-free Alternatives to Eggs at Easter

    1. Cookie or Cake-Shaped Eggs: A bunny or egg-shaped cookie cutter or cake pan will provide the shape. Grab a variety of food coloring and royal icing to create your own designs and patterns.
    2. Marshmallows: Who said you can only dye eggs at Easter? Among the alternatives to eggs, dyeing plain marshmallows is fun and easy. Use q-tips, toothpicks, and paintbrushes to design the marshmallows using food coloring. Another trick is fine-tip markers.
    3. Eggs-Shaped Jello Treats: Simply use a sharp knife or a small drill bit to make a hole in the top of plastic eggs. Using the closed molds, fill the eggs with Jello to set them.
    4. Prize Eggs: Prize eggs are a tried and true option that serves as perfect alternatives to eggs. From small toys to cash for older kids, finding the biggest prize makes for a fun competition.
    5. Lego Eggs: For kids who love a challenge, check out these egg-making Lego kits. Each kit comes with step-by-step instructions or kids can go at it on their own.
    6. Wooden Eggs: These can be picked up at most craft stores or the craft section of your favorite big box store. Use chalkboard paint or any craft paint you have on hand to design them.
    7. Baking Soda Dough: Combine 1/2 cup cornstarch, 1 cup baking soda, and 3/4 cup water, use cookie cutters to make the shape, and bake for about an hour in the oven at 175 degrees F. Once the eggs are cooled, get creative.

With the cost of eggs at an all-time high, these methods use items you probably already have on hand and provide kids with egg allergy alternatives to eggs at Easter.
