Allergy-friendly Easter Treats
Traditionally, Easter baskets are filled with chocolate, jelly beans, stuffed animals and all sorts of other items which are unsafe for children with allergies.
Here are some allergy-friendly items that the Easter bunny often puts in our baskets:
Play dough (home-made or store-bought) in plastic eggs
Plastic eggs filled with safe candy
Pencils, erasers, sharpeners
Notepads or coloring books
Easter video (great if you are traveling that day)
Ribbons, ties, purses, barrettes or other accessories to wear with our Easter clothes
Fruit tied with a bow
Special cup or mug
Coupons for: "An extra trip to the park", "Get out of chores for a day", "Stay up an extra _____ minutes", "Dinner of choice", "30 minute activity of choice with Mom or Dad"
