Dyeing Easter Eggs

If your child is allergic to eggs, you might avoid dyeing Easter eggs in order to avoid any exposure whatsoever. But fortunately, your child doesn’t have to miss out on the fun! Egg Nots is a company born out of this very need. The eggs are ceramic but look just like the real deal. And parents, you’ll love the fact that using Egg Nots frees you from having to boil batch after batch of eggs. The company also sells a dye kit, since some products designed for use with real eggs don’t transfer as well to the ceramic.
