As I was sorting through my Misc. Stash, I came across three eggs, metallic finish kinda (although made of plastic) y'know: Ooooh! Shiny! Pretty! 

They are smaller than L'Eggs eggs (do they still make those???) but a generous size for your typical hide-'em-for-Easter eggs.  Suggestions???

Maybe put a face on 'em Humpyt Dumpty style...but then what?  Seems like they should do more that just smile back at me.

Do you have any kids in your life? Make maraca-type shaker instruments! Fill each one with rice, beans, ball bearings, whatever... Hot glue them closed if you're giving them to kids. They make a surprisingly good sound. I made six pairs of these and my preschool class loves them.
