Plastic Easter Egg Ideas for Post-Holiday Fun!

PlasticEggActivitiesIf you celebrated Easter this past weekend, chances are the Easter Egg hunts are over, most of the eggs are now emptied of their treats and sweets, and the only thing left to do is pack away the eggs and baskets away for next year–but wait–not so fast! Extend the holiday fun in your household with a few plastic egg ideas that are a real blast! We hunted on the internet and found some fabulous ideas we wanted to share. We’ve also included our ratings for the parent “Fiddle Factor,” how difficult or easy the idea is to prepare, and the kid “Fun Factor,” how much your children will enjoy it.
