Let your kids know which packaged foods are safe for them to eat by using stickers like these! Another great idea from koriclark.com is to make business cards to send with your kids to school and to parties, letting them know they should not serve them any food that has not been checked for their allergen.

There is a recipe for egg-free gingerbread houses and gingerbread men in The Egg-Free Cookbook. There is also an egg-free recipe for royal icing, which is traditionally used to decorate these types of projects because it is very strong due to the fact it contains egg whites.
But besides from cooking an egg-free pan of gingerbread, a gingerbread house can be made from graham crackers. Or, create the cute igloo pictured here using sugar cubes! The igloo idea comes from the FARE Blog. Read it here.
The royal icing recipe from The Egg-Free Cookbook is very simple. It’s just 1 cup powdered sugar and 1/4 cup corn syrup. It takes a strong spoon and a minute or two with a strong arm to stir it together.
Another great holiday idea is to make a log cabin using this egg-free royal icing and large pretzel rods. Happy decorating!
HomeFree sells egg-free cookies and treats. Check out their website if you feel like skipping baking sometime.
