Easter Is Coming...

And it's coming up pretty quick, you know what that means...a gazillion eggs will be bought to eat and color. Well if your looking for an alternative I came across this site with some great ideas. I really like the felt ones, however I would use a non-animal material :) Also remember kids like other things besides a bunch of candy in their baskets, try making some homemade sidewalk chalk, or add things like bubbles, coloring books and crayons. Healthier treats would be good too like fruit leather, or freeze dried fruits, nuts, or even homemade goodies that don't contain artificial ingredients, or food coloring.
Although they are not a health food, here are some recipe's I would like to try:
By not buying eggs you show that you do not support the egg laying industry which causes hens to suffer and have a shorter lifespan, yes even "cage free" hens still suffer, please Click Here to learn more. When I learned about the horrible way animals are treated and realized they don't need to die I stopped consuming them. They are no different then a pet dog or other loved animal in your life. It just breaks my heart to see what they go through and knowing this isn't necessary.
