EggNots

EggNots are hands down the best, most realistic alternative for vegan kids at Easter time. EggNots are extremely realistic looking eggs made of ceramic. These little eggs feel and look like the real deal, but are non-perishable and eco-friendly because you can reuse them and redecorate them annually. EggNots can be decorated just the same as real eggs with homemade dye or a natural Easter egg dye kit.

Papier-mache polka dotted eggs

These paper eggs created by Not Martha are truly adorable, and although they’re paper they crack open just like real eggs, making them perfect for hiding small Easter treats inside. You and your kids can make these pretty eggs with any color tissue paper you choose or make them with plain colored tissue and then let your kids paint them or use stickers to liven them up.

Wooden eggs

After EggNots, smooth wooden eggs are probably your second best bet if you’re looking for an eco-friendly, long-lasting and realistic alternative to decorating real eggs. Smooth wooden eggs offer a clean canvas for whatever designs your child can dream up using markers, paint, glitter or other embellishments. You can find untreated wooden eggs or subtly colored pastel wooden eggs at Apple N Amos.

Soft fillable fabric eggs

With some leftover fabric bits, buttons and thread, any child who can safely wield a needle can help make some of these cute fabric eggs. You can fill the eggs with candy or small treats and reuse them year after year. You can even make these with eco-friendly felt instead of fabric if you’d like.

Salt dough Easter eggs

These salt dough eggs are so easy even your youngest kiddos can help make them. Once dry they can be painted, or before baking your child can stamp designs into them. As an alternative, consider making egg-shaped clay eggs, using an old plastic Easter egg as a mold.
