For many people, Easter is the time of year for indulging in chocolate and all kinds of other sweet treats. However, for people who are at risk of a serious allergic reaction, these festivities can be challenging, especially for children who may need alternative treats to help them stay safe.
Anaphylaxis UK wants to create a brighter future for people with serious allergies, and that includes making sure children are not excluded. Here we’ve listed some allergy-safe activities to enjoy whether your child has an allergy or you are hosting an event for children with allergies.
If your child has an egg allergy, avoid real eggs. Purchase some wooden eggs, available online or in store from many craft retailers. Decorate the eggs and get creative. You can also cut out some 2D eggs from card for children to colour in. You can download our Easter Egg Templates here.
Hide the eggs from the previous activity or other treats that you know are safe for your child. You could even turn the game on its head and have one person be the “Easter bunny” and the children be the “eggs” in one big game of hide and seek.
