Easter is always an exciting holiday that is all about family, food, fun and of course, a special visit for the little ones. It’s a chance to relax and enjoy the sweeter side of life. Easter traditions are something to be treasured. Some of the most common ones are larger family lunches and a special egg hunt for the little ones. Some just to get away from it all and enjoy quiet family moments.
Your little ones first Easter wouldn’t be complete without a cute set of pyjamas. Our 100% organic zip growsuit, in pink or grey, are perfect for comfort and collecting hidden treats the next morning. For day play, try our organic bunny bow tee in pink or aeroplane bunny in grey tees. Mix them with our special Easter leggings and your little one has the perfect outfit for family gatherings.
For little ones who may be too small to divulge in chocolate, why not celebrate their first Easter with a Bunny rattle? Made from 100% organic velour and with a soft bell inside, it is a fun companion to Easter adventures.
As the holidays are around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about activities for inside. Weaving an Easter basket, making an Easter bonnet or even making cute little Easter treats… there are so many ideas. We have included a fun indoor activity for you and your little one.
From our family to yours, we wish you a very happy and safe Easter.

- White eggs
- Red cabbage (blue)
- Beets (pale pink)
- Spinach (pale yellow-green)

- Begin by hard-boiling your eggs.
- While the eggs are cooking, juice the spinach, beets, and red cabbage into separate cups.
- Add about 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric and espresso to two separate cups of 4 ounces of water each. Add 1 teaspoon of white vinegar to all 5 cups.
- Add one egg to each cup and allow it to rest in the mixture.
