Using Leftover Eggs

Our house is inundated with plastic eggs after attending FIVE egg hunts in the last two weeks. We have been coming up with lots of ideas of things to do with them, here are just a few that we loved. This is what we started off after yesterday's hunt:

First we sorted by color:

Then we decided to make shapes. My four year old daughter decided she wanted a rainbow, so we worked on that first:

My 2 year old son wanted a space shuttle:

We then came up with some more permanent ones, for example using them as seed starters for our garden:

And as little containers for small items on my daughter's vanity:

These are all in addition to the usual counting of the eggs which they could do all day long! All in all this was a great activity that entertained the kids (and me!) for a long time using things we had at home!

I don't have to tell you what to do with REAL leftover eggs, right? I think this one is not only obvious but also very yummy!

Such cute ideas! I love the idea of using it on your daughters vanity to store all her little things. We just used to store them away and bring them out the next year, lol!

Thanks for linking up today.

Great ideas! I love the use of them as seed starters.

And of course, who can pass up a deviled egg? :-)

Thanks for sharing @ Market Yourself Monday!

How fun! I guess I'm uptight in that I usually make my kids quit playing with them, since they end up all over the house. I should rethink my approach. ;)
