9 Silly Toys You Can Make from Plastic Easter Eggs

When Easter is over I stuff all the baskets and plastic eggs (and a few crafts we didn’t get to) into a big plastic tub in my basement.

I haven’t bought plastic eggs in YEARS — but I still have quite a collection. My boys truly love hunting for eggs on Easter morning, so I’ve got a good 50 or more in the tub!
