With a touch of creativity, plastic Easter eggs can become great inspiration and starter material for fun crafts with your kids. Here are just a few ideas:
- make little Easter egg people or animals using markers, construction paper, glitter, ribbon, stickers and other glue-ons
- make nesting dolls with different size eggs - your children will have fun making their own characters and you can discuss concepts of size
- grow a garden of daffodils using some wire and felt (some eggs come with tiny holes in the bottoms, those are good for this craft) - you can fill the cups with little messages or candies and give them away to a friend
- the eggs with the little holes are great for stringing together as well for garlands and necklaces. One egg can instantly be transformed into a locket to carry a favorite little treasure.
- nail halves of the eggs (cup upward) to a flat piece of wood. Fill the cups with favorite bird treats and place on a window ledge or in a garden as is or drill two holes at either end and suspend with rope like a swing.
- create a fun wreath for next year
