With Easter right around the corner, we’re sharing eight eco-crafts, gifts, and candies to give your little bunnies a holiday filled with better-for-you treats from brands we love. These products are healthier, good for the environment, and cute as can be!

1. Natural Egg Dye Kit from Natural Earth Paint

Egg dye naturally seeps through the shell into the egg itself. So if your dye contains toxins like Red #40, so will the egg inside that you eat. With the Natural Egg Dye Kit, the colors are derived from fruits, herbs, and veggies so that you can feel good about little hands coloring and little mouths eating the eggs. This vegan, GMO-free, and gluten-free kit features four natural dyes to make 5-6 colors, as well as an instruction sheet with creative ideas to get you started. ($9, naturalearthpaint.com)

2. Wooden Egg Craft Kit from Natural Earth Paint

Want a craft that will last for years to come? Try these handmade and sustainable eggs made with FSC certified wood from responsibly managed forests. The kit contains six 2-inch wooden eggs, six colors of Children’s Earth Paint, and one bamboo paintbrush. ($16, naturalearthpaint.com)

3. Organic Patterned Bunnies from Apple Park

Want an Easter pal your kids can snuggle with? These hypoallergenic plush stuffed bunnies are made from 100% organic cotton, natural silk, and sustainable corn and hemp. They are toxin free and come in an array of pretty prints for you to choose from. ($27, amazon.com)
