Plastic Easter Egg Crafts

{Precious bird and bunny garland from}

So, I didn’t grow up celebrating Easter, and every year that I worked at Parents magazine, I needed a refresher as to how Easter worked. What happens with the eggs? Do you hide the ones you decorate? Do you hard-boil them and eat them? And the bunny…what’s his role again? I swear, I have the whole Christmas-Santa-Mistletoe thing down, but Easter confounds me every year.

But, this confusion in no way reflects upon my awe of the Easter Egg. This will be the first of a few Easter craft posts, I imagine…so I’ll start with what is its own miraculous transformation—the plastic Easter egg. Scroll down and you’ll see ways to use it that have nothing to do with Easter!

These play teacups are made from half of a plastic Easter egg and a button glued to the bottom to make it stable. By Creativity in Progress.

I’m obsessed with these plastic egg maracas made by MADE.

Put an educational spin on your plastic eggs with this letter matching game from Playing House.

I believe these are a product, but how cute would this chicken egg be as a craft? Note to self. Found on Lulusoso.
