How to Reuse Plastic Easter Eggs

Posted by Alyssa on April 17, 2017

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....
