I got a big easter basket this year from my boy with a bunch of prefilled plastic eggs that open long-wise (if that makes sense). They also have two little holes on each side so I can't use them for making popsicles or ice eggs like I did when I was little. I am sure I won't save them to use next year, I usually don't do much for Easter, but I don't want to throw them away.

Ideas?

Her's a link to a download-http://dwarnerdesign.blogspot.com/
It's a cut out of Robin,with the words "jingle bells,batmansmells,robin laid an egg!" You cut a hole in the bottom for the plastic egg,which holds it upright,and you could put a few candies in the egg if you wanted.Really cute-I made a couple last year.

You could make little popsicles - use a thick piece of heated metal to melt a notch in the pointed end, fill half of it with yummy stuff, then lay flat in the freezer.

You could maybe do some of that with those chocolate lolipops too. I'd use saran wrap as a barrier for ease of removal and to keep the plastic from releasing icky chemicals, though - I don't know what type of plastic they use in those.

If you have a garden you use them as seed starters since they will drain...
you could do some cool christmas light board and cover them with the eggs shells as A cool Christmas thing..

 you could poke floral wire through the holes of the eggs then piece them together creating some kind of mobile, funky chandelier..  or flower..  you could push air dry clay or model magic into them and use them as a base for some kind of funky sculpture before it dries totally...  if you put saran wrap in side the eggs first it will cover the holes... then you can do you favorite thing...
  maybey you could sting them all together In a really funky way and Make the ultimate Mardi Gras necklace .. or some kind of springy room divider...  ...  Think of them as large funky beads .. cus those hole's have created something new...    you could spray paint them all gold n silver..  and   hot glue little Christmas scenes/ cards in them...


 .. What interesting about your eggs is they open long ways.. so you Can get a thin string or ribbon and possibly close it in .. you have a loop at the top and perhaps a tassel at the bottom.. if your egg is clear.. you could perhaps decoupage or glue a scene.. think of looking through magazines and pasting on to the inside of the shell.. then perhaps putting some sequins and bigger sparkles and Simalar colored items in side.. you could even have a photo of your self in it..    you could use jewel glue or hot glue to seal the egg and decorate it with gems...  save the eggs to decorate a tree next yr for easter.. OR you could fancy them up for Christmas like Faberge


I actually have an easter wreath..  you get a Straw wreath from a craft store.. and hot glue.. either a feather boa all around it or Easter grass..  then you glue on all the eggs..  Tada easter wreath.. either sell it, use it or give to some one next year come spring time..

here are some cute egg wreath I found at target...

this one looks  pretty busy but it's a very plastic easter egg wreath..


Or you could get one of those straw hats and  hot glue eggs into it..

I can't find eggs without holes at all anymore!  What's with that?  I used to love making egg icesickles, now my daughter will not get to do it.

I think all Easter Eggs have holes in them now because I read about them being a suffacation risk for very small children in them place them over their face  and breath in they could get stuck. I mean, no, they didn't have holes in them when I was little, and I was fine, but I guess time improves stuff.

Wouldn't the holes mean germs get on the candy? It seems odd to me.
If you drill one more hole in each half you could run a string through and make a hanging bird feeder...

OK, so this month's challenge is making things out of plastic easter eggs. You enter yours on May 1. Read about it here:

I am still pondering. Have fun with it whatever you decide.
