Creative Play with Easter Eggs!

My daughter has been eyeing the plastic Easter eggs for the past couple of months. They’ve been in our storage room since last Easter, taunting her with their vibrant colors. I finally gave in to her demands last week and broke them out so we could play with them. Sure, we’ll do an Easter egg hunt and fill her Easter basket next weekend, but we found some other ways to enjoy the eggs before the real excitement of Easter is upon us. From color-sorting and music-making, the options are endless! (Not to mention, AFFORDABLE!)
