Etsy is a fabulous place to shop if you’re planning an eco-friendly Easter for your kids. There’s a lot to choose from and you get to support small, handmade companies and earth friendly materials. Just be sure to order early. Due to the handmade nature of most Etsy goodies, the crafters need extra time. Below are 7 amazingly sweet (and green) Easter treats for your child.
Easter basket set from Imagination Kids: For under $50 you can score a complete eco-friendly Easter basket for your child. This set comes with tons of natural and handmade Easter goodies, including, a fabric tote basket, sweet rolling push bunny, a set of 6 wooden Easter eggs (you choose from heirloom, pastel or rainbow colored), a colorful wand (flower, star, butterfly, or toadstool), a wooden bunny figure, and a personalized Easter egg. All materials used to create this basket are eco-friendly and certified non-toxic.
Spring Marshmallow Birds by Have It Sweet: These are so much better than traditional Peeps. Made by hand in small batches to order, these pretty little marshmallow birds are cooked, hand-poured, hand cut, and hand wrapped, made with zero corn syrup and naturally colored sugars in a licensed/commercial kitchen.
100% Organic Cotton Bunny from Millie Fern: So adorable! This little bunny friend has a body crocheted amigurumi style from organic cottons in cream, cranberry red and aqua with pink for the nose and is filled with Eco-friendly Inego fiber stuffing (Inego fiber is made from renewable corn). Also, this bunny features The safety doll eyes. Also recommended at Millie Fern is the most adorable Felted Wool Bunny.
Natural Wood Toy- Easter Egg Basket from apple n amos: I love this set – perfect for play kitchen fun all year round, but especially at Easter time. You get 5 beautifully hand painted Spring / Easter eggs in shades of pink, yellow, green, blue and lilac along with a wooden farmers pail with wire handle. Set is shipped to you in a organic USA made muslin bag. All the eggs are hand sanded smooth for little hands and hand painted with all natural soy paints. Eggs are sealed with olive oil and beeswax polish.
Fillable Felt Easter Eggs from LookHappy: Instead of lame old plastic eggs, why not use reusable felt eggs?! Each of these felt eggs are made with soft pastel felt, all hand stitched and are open in the back so that you can slip small loose candies inside. The shop takes special color orders too if you have something specific in mind.
Organic Rabbit Softie & Egg Set from SewnNatural: This limited edition set is a beautiful, eco-friendly surprise for your little one on Easter morning. The set comes with 3 wooden eggs that are hand painted to look like natural heritage chicken eggs and finished with non toxic homemade beeswax wood polish. The super cute organic rabbit is handcrafted with soft 100% organic creamy white cotton fleece and stuffed with pure wool stuffing that is anti-dust-mite, anti-microbial, flame retardant and very springy.
Felted Musical Eggs from Critical Eggplant: This is a great, unique idea for Easter baskets. Each of these eggs are made from recycled plastic easter eggs and felted to pure plushness with delightful brightly colored wool. The eggs are then filled with beads so kids can play “music” on Easter morning.
