Ostara is a symbol of fertility but many pagans use actual animal eggs for potlucks, rituals, spells, and art. But you can make your Ostara--or Easter--celebration much better and cruelty--free vegan:
For potlucks, look into any of the egg-free alternatives for egg dishes. You can find the cruelty-free products at health food stores like Whole Foods. The brand Ener-G Replacer is a great egg substitute for any egg dish. Tofu scramble is good too.
Tie-dyeing is terrific for adults and kids! Use cruelty-free ingredients to dye altar cloths, ritual cloaks, and anything else you want dyed instead of buying and dying eggs.
For Easter hunts, have children look for plastic eggs that might be painted or contain hidden treasures. Buying bags of the plastic eggs may not be eco-friendly, but if you get those, using them over and over every year is still much better on the environment than real factory-farmed eggs, plus no harm done to animals.
The little plastic eggs are also great for spells and majick. Make a charm by putting spell scrolls, stones, and herbs in them, charge them, and hang them on trees outside your house, or indoors in some prominent place.
Ostara and Easter is a wonderful time to plant herbs, foods, and flowers.
