What vegan Easter traditions does everyone do with their little ones? Has anyone colored ceramic or wooden eggs? Or used Eggnots? Looking for ideas, we already do a plastic egg hunt and Easter bunny calendar.

We do a plastic egg hunt. Last year I bought wooden eggs to paint but never got around to it. Maybe this year we will.

Reno and I are also making a garland for every holiday this year. We are looking forward to the easter one. :)

shiitake loads of chocolate and a hunt with clues that gets more insane with every passing year.

We paint wooden or paper mâché eggs each year. I'll have to post pics, they turn out so cute and we love to look back at past years eggs! We do a plastic egg hunt with treats and riddles and stuff too.

When I was growing up we always had an 'Easter Tree' which was basically a branch brought indoors with lots of coloured ribbons and Eastery decorations on it; if you excluded painted chickens eggs that could be a vegan idea :)

I just saw this on pinterest and thought of the PPK parents. Looks like a cute idea to make eggs for slightly older kids.

That looks so fun, Mollyjade! Going to do these with the kids. We've never done an Easter tree but have decided to this year. These would make perfect decorations for it.

Has anyone seen Eggnots in stores or anything, or used them? I was about to go buy a set, and I was like, OK, $16/dozen, sure, whatever, and then shipping was another $11 and my credit card was on the other side of the room and I was all "eh." I've heard they require a lot of dips to dye them, but I was hoping to try out Czech egg dying.

Ooh I'm excited I just came across some biodegradable "plastic-type" eco eggs made from plants.

I had already caved and bought a plastic pack from rite-aid, but I just checked and I still have my receipt in the bag so I'm going to return them and get these. The cheapest I found them was for $5.75 plus shipping on Amazon. The shipping sucks but I figure I'll be using them for easter egg hunts for many years since Kai is only 2 so it is worth it.

Maybe I should add we're also giving him a basket. Next year I like the paper mache egg idea but he isn't into crafts right now so I'm going to wait. I also always make a carrot cake, with shredded coconut and jelly beans on top.

Did anyone else have a lot of trouble finding a vegan chocolate bunny this year? I looked in a ton of stores but even the dark ones all had milk in them.

I finally came across this list and ended up buying some candy from Chocolate Emporium. I hate shipping, I wish there was someplace nearby!!
