New Uses for Plastic Easter Eggs

With Easter just happening this past Sunday, you probably have a few plastic Easter eggs around. Bet you didn't guess they have tons of other uses. Here's a list of things you can do with those eggs, after eating the candy of course.
  • Store pantyhose.
  • Store necklaces to keep them from tangling together, would be great for travel as well.
  • Make a duck. Or really there are tons of crafts out there to use them. Or you can just decorate them to make fancy eggs for next year.
  • Use them to store homemade play-doh
  • Fill with potpourri  and poke holes in it to use as an air freshener.
  • Use it to make garland, that you can use to decorate next year.
  • Store beads in them for crafting, for extra organization match the color on the outside to the beads on the inside.
  • Use them for kids to learn counting, colors, etc.
  • Instead of messy eggs during an egg race (where you hold the egg on the spoon) or egg toss, use plastic eggs. If they drop it they are out.
  • Use half an egg to scoop sand at the beach.
  • Store spare buttons in them.
  • Pack some thread, needle, and a button in there for a travel sewing kit.
  • Make rice krispie eggs
  • Store snacks in them for the lunch box or diaper bag.
  • Make egg shakers. Just fill them with rice, beans, or beads and use them as a musical instrument. (You can hot glue gun the pieces together, to make it more permanent).
  • Donate them. Many churches and community groups put on Easter egg hunts, and would gladly accept donations of your eggs.
  • Save them for next year. Don't waste money buying eggs year after year, just save them.
If you have any ideas for Easter Eggs, share below and I will add it to the list.
