It’s all over Pinterest. It’s all over Facebook. DIY Easter Egg crafts. So, I gave it a whirl. We stopped by the Dollar Store and picked up some cheap plastic eggs. That was my first mistake.
I filled the eggs with random things I found in my kitchen. I originally filled the holes with hot glue, but that failed. The hot glue just peeled off, so I went with duct tape. I sealed the eggs with some crazy glue. Originally, I had seen them taped shut, but I knew they’d go straight into his mouth so I didn’t want him to suck off the tape. (But then I duct taped the holes, so that failed). Maybe you could find higher quality eggs that didn’t have holes?
These eggs were a HUGE HIT. Walter loves them. He does just shove them in his mouth, but he has figured out how to shake them. He loves listening to us shake them or shaking them himself. The downside is they were cheap eggs and have broken already. I wish I could make these with a sturdier product. The first egg to crack was the one filled with stones. Then the rice egg fell apart, and so far we have beans and quinoa left.
