I live in hope that there will be hot cross buns available, but what I learnt last year is that the only chocolate (gluten free, vegan) that she will eat is a bunny I bought at a specialty shop, and she didn't even finish it.
This year she is getting 2 books, a small craft set, a movie, 1 bunny chocolate (think it was 40g) and maybe a new outfit. I was also thinking of getting a fish. We have the accessories, so just need fish and some food for him.
For others with kids who won't get chocolate, what do you do?
Also what do you have in place of hot cross buns?

We just do an easter egg hunt with those little plastic eggs you get from Spotlight. You could put anything inside them, the kids don't seem to care - the fun's in the finding. Maybe love notes, or little dinos (you can get a bag of tiny ones from big w for a $1.) Then I keep the eggs for the next year.

could you make your own hot cross buns, using gluten free flour etc?

there's a recipe. there is an egg in it but it says to just add extra nuttlex instead. they use an egg for the glaze as well but i guess you could just brush the buns with whatever milk you use (soy, almond, rice etc)

I pinned a idea of a blown out egg you paint, squeeze inside a note then crack open.. The plastic eggs sound great! Will be on the hunt for vegan, soy, gluten, sugar and yeast free hot cross bun recipe... Think I'll make chocolates with vegan choc in moulds... I actually hadn't thought of Easter! Been trying to plan the bday parties! I've decided they will have fruit and smoothies at the party this year!!!!! I dnt give a hoot about kids tastebuds!!!!!

Dark chocolate (70% and up) is gluten and dairy free, perhaps make your own eggs from that?
I remember when I was a kid, for Easter we'd make an Easter bonnet every year. A few times I got toy Easter bilbies, the type where proceeds go to the 'save the bilby fund'.
