5 Great Ways to Reuse Those Eggs from Easter

Wanna save money and learn new ways for your child have fun? How about reusing those plastic Easter eggs they hunted down for on Easter? Instead of throwing them out after they eat all their goodies from inside, they can be used for everyday games and weekly activities. Or you could save them for next year, to save bucks when the Easter bunny comes hopping around again…. Here are 5 ways you can get those eggs to good use:

1) On a rainy day, or a boring day at home, grab those Easter eggs and fill them with treats you have in your kitchen such as cookies or candy. Have your kids look for them around the house and collect them. It is a great way to get them to exercise and have fun instead of sitting on the couch watching TV all day inside the house.

2) On a hot, summer day throw them in the pool and have a contest to see which one can collect the most eggs from the pool. The prize you want to give or even want to give one is completely up to you.

3) On Christmas, you can paint them and fill them with holiday goodies which can be great gifts for the little ones. They also can be great fun stocking stuffers and can play: Find Rudolf's Apples. A game a created where you paint the eggs red and inside are candy. The child that finds the most wins.

4) In the classroom, if you are a teacher these Easter eggs can be used for great use. Have a contest. For example, one game you can play with them is a Word Game. This game is a great way to help children recognize letters and spell words. Paint a single letter on each egg and divide the class into groups of 2-4. Give them a word a piece of paper, but for this game to work make sure you have enough eggs and letters so all the students can find the letters they need. Hide the eggs around the classroom before you give them their word and have them hunt down the letters in their word. The group to find all the letters in their word wins the game. For teacher, the prize you can give is extra credit or a treat. Whichever you desire or feel is best. Every teacher is different.

5) Have a baby on the way? These Easter eggs can be used for your baby shower! Games are always played at baby showers and are great fun, especially for your guest because prizes are given to the winner. Have a egg hunt! Put money or an object inside one egg that represents your baby shower and the person to find that egg first with the object inside wins. Hide the eggs before everyone shows up, so no one knows where they are at.

There you have it! 5 great ways to put those Easter eggs to good use! Don't just throw them out, recycle and Save money! They also make great toys for your toddler to play with on a day to day basis.
