Which came first, the egg carton or the egg? One year I banned plastic eggs from my home and encouraged myself and the kids to get creative to replace them. My daughter figured out that two egg carton inserts formed a rustic-like egg shape... Then the fun began as she made these cool eco-friendly plastic egg replacements.
The kids and I started tearing out the egg domes one by one. My two-year-old was just tearing, but my five-year-old was pretty good at carefully removing the egg shapes that we needed.
The eggs came out so fun and festive. I was liking our new plastic egg replacement more and more... We set them out to dry and the kids headed up to bed.
While my little ones slept, I filled our new eggs with treats and sealed two cups together with a little hot glue. (If you want the kids to be a part of this step tacky glue will work just fine. I was just impatient!)
