Last week Lacy came up with some awesome ways to reuse your plastic Easter eggs in playtime, and I have one more to add to the list:
Here’s an easy craft idea for the leftover plastic eggs scattered around your house right now…
One plastic Easter egg
Two plastic spoons
Dry rice, beans, coucous, quinoa — anything that’ll make noise
Tape or hot glue gun
Crepe paper, ribbon, yarn, or anything else you can find to cover the egg
1. Fill your egg with whatever dry grain/legume you can find — just enough to make a nice-sounding rattle.
2. Tape or glue the two plastic spoons to either side of the plastic egg.
3. Cover the entire egg with crepe paper, craft tape, yarn, ribbon, etc. Use your imagination.
4. Let them decorate!
