My children get bought so many Easter eggs trying to tell them they can't eat every single one in the space of a few hours always ends in tantrums and tears. Here is a list of amazing alternatives that do not end in a sugar crash:
1. Bunny Teether
Babies definitely do not need chocolate. That doesn't mean you can't get them an Easter gift that they can sink their teeth into! These teethers from Hallie and Harlow are perfect for them to chew on.
Not only do they help with teething but they also come with a silicone raised non slip circular grip which can help babies when learning to grasp - the perfect product to learn through sensory play.
2. Nesting Babies
These beautiful Nesting Babies encourage hand-to-eye co-ordination through interactive play and are a great Easter Egg alternative for all ages as they are suitable from birth. My son Ethan has these and is still playing with them at age 3.
Playtime is precious time and our brightly coloured Nesting Babies make a wonderful and charming addition to the nursery. Parents can demonstrate how the toy works, and watch baby’s excitement as the Rosa babies are revealed one by one. Then there’s the final sensory surprise of a chiming Bo Bunny in the centre!
3. Make your own t-shirt
For ones that are a little bit older (3+) these creative bunny t-shirts or sweatshirts are great for children to design themselves and get creative.
Each kit contains a t-shirt with a bunny head outline, two oilboard stencils, three unique eco friendly inks, which include a neon, metallic and another bright colour and a brush.
