Much as I love to color eggs with my kids, there are only so many hard-boiled eggs one family can eat.  And while the plastic eggs aren’t perishable, they aren’t particularly attractive or earth-friendly either.

These felted Easter eggs from astashtoys are a great alternative.  Made by hand with colorful Merino wool, these eco-friendly eggs look great nestled in baskets or in a ceramic bowl as an Easter dinner table centerpiece.

Or heck, hide them on the lawn. Then once they’re found, bring them inside and put them away for next year. Unlike the laid-from-a-hen variety, these eggs are keepers. -Julie
