Parents are growing more conscious of the liquids and dyes we expose our children to. Whether it’s in regard to foods your kids are ingesting, juices they’re drinking, the clothing the wear, or things like markers and paints, a few easy choices can go a long way in protecting our kids from unnecessary toxins.
Priced at just a few dollars more than the standard Easter egg dying kits at drug stores, the ones on this list are made with safe, natural dyes, all derived from fruits, vegetables and spices.
With Easter just around the corner, you’ll want to shop below for the safest picks.
