In many households, Easter marks the arrival of the Easter Bunny and chocolate treats. It is then followed by a few weeks (or days) of consuming all of those goodies. Unless you are my family; we tend to eat it so slowly it turns a white-ish colour. We don’t want to be wasteful but we still want to have fun.
Dollar store to the rescue! They stock plain white egg shaped Styrofoam that are begging to be coloured. We started this process a few weeks ago and have accumulated a lovely pile of decorated eggs. These can then be hidden on Easter morning and sought by our four-year old.
I love that this is a multi-stage process that can be enjoyed over several days or weeks. Or in our forgetful house it could be months. Last year, I found one hiding in a box of Q-tips in May! Thankful that Styrofoam eggs don’t rot!
