I hope you all had a lovely Easter! Ours was wonderful, but I'll be honest- I kind of want to kill the Easter bunny for bringing so much sugar to my house. My kids are totally wired, and I'm dragging. Like, realllllllly dragging. I think we probably need a week of no candy and lots of fruits and vegetables.
Also, let it be known: If I trip on one more plastic egg I think I might really lose it.
I'm only half kidding....
We went to three Easter egg hunts this year, and as a result, we have an entire army of those cute little plastic colored eggs. And that army is invading my house. Here are the ones I have found (so far):
I discovered today that I have a love/hate relationship with plastic eggs. The minimalist in me wanted to throw them all away immediately. But once I had gathered them together I just couldn't get over the pretty explosion of color that was happeneing right before my eyes! It just felt wrong and wasteful to throw them away, and I started racking my brain: How could I repurpose these eggs? So naturally, the first thing I did was go to my trusy friend, google. Turns out, people have pondered over this question for a lot longer than myself, and they've got tons of ideas to show for it! Pop Sugar compiled a blog post featuring 36 ways to reuse plastic eggs- there are so many good ones! I took an idea from there and ran with it to make an ABC matching game for my preschool aged children. All it took was a sharpie, and about 10 minutes of my day, and voila!
Cute, don't you think?
Here are a few other ideas from Pop Sugar that I thought were fun....
