What do you do with too many plastic eggs?
Make them into something else!
The possibilities are endless but here are three ideas that are kid-friendly too:
1. Make a colorful caterpillar
Glue the round sides to each other to make a chain. Use a larger size egg for the head. Glue on googly eyes and a yarn smile. Cut two pieces of pipe cleaners for antennae. I just pushed them into the little holes on the egg but they could be glued on.
He’s so silly!
Glue a half egg to another egg like this.
Apply glue to eggs and cover with shredded yellow tissue paper. Glue little black beads on for eyes. I cut small triangles into orange ribbon to make the beaks. You could also use orange felt, paper, etc.
Aren’t they adorable in my jute nest!
3. Make teeny tiny teacups.
I found this idea on Design Dazzle and thought it was so cute.
Using the longer side of the egg, glue buttons on the bottom to stabilize. Decorate as you like. We added little handles to some of ours using pipe cleaners.
So dainty! Perfect for a doll-size tea party!
