Every year we end up with more of those plastic Easter eggs than we really need. I save so many to put in storage for next years family egg hunt but what do you do with all of the rest after they’ve been found and opened? Surprisingly, besides holding treats these inexpensive eggs can be reused for games, educational activities, and some pretty adorable crafts.
This year, after your kids are done with their Easter egg hunt reuse some of those plastic eggs for a fun Easter craft session! Check out some of my favorite ways to reuse plastic Easter eggs below.
