My daughter is 15 months old so I didn’t want to make too much a big deal for Easter since she doesn’t understand what Easter is about. However, I did want to do something special and that’s why I made her an Easter basket and a giant Easter egg where I stuffed one of her gifts.
Tonight I started thinking more about Easter and how we will celebrate it in the future. I want her to participate in Easter egg hunts because they are SO much fun. I knew I didn’t want to take her to an Easter egg hunt this year because she’s too young but since this is a tradition I want to follow I decided we just had to have an egg hunt this year.
My Easter Egg hunt plan
We’re spending Easter with my in-laws so after talking to my amazing mother-in-law I will be putting Easter eggs all over her yard and have my toddler pick them up. We won’t hide them since she would never find them so we’ll just lay them out in a way she won’t miss them.
I’m sure she will love picking up a bunch of colorful eggs from the ground and putting them in her basket.
Easter Eggs – What to put in them?
The first challenge I had was figuring out what I would put inside the eggs. I don’t want her eating candy and I don’t want to put some cheap toys that might be made from toxic plastic.
Easter Eggs – What to buy?
If you follow my blog you know by now I tend to look for non-toxic versions of everything. Easter eggs weren’t an exception since they are made from plastic and most plastic has toxic ingredients in it. Plus I am going to put unwrapped food inside of them. I needed a non-toxic option. This is when I found Eco eggs:
Eco eggs are made in the USA from plants, 100% renewable content, and are fully compostable after use. They are made from non-toxic, durable plastic and have a tight snapping closure. Eco eggs are extra-large in size measuring 3″ x 2.25″. Eco eggs can be stored and reused for many Easters. After use, dispose of eggs in industrial compost.
They come in packs of 12, 28 & 48. I got the 28 pack for my toddler. They are more expensive than regular plastic eggs but with these eggs I’m not worried about putting food in them that my daughter will eat later and I will reuse for years to come. The best part is that once I’m done with them I can compost them.
I can’t wait to have our little Easter egg hunt! I’ll post pictures next week.
Happy Easter everyone!
