Real or fake eggs for the easter egg hunt??

Just curious to see if you ladies hide the eggs you colored, or those little plastic ones?

  • I only hide fake because I don't like the thought of rotting eggs, but we dye real eggs for the baskets.

  • Fake. We wouldn't eat that many eggs, so it'd be a waste. We reuse the fake ones every year.

  • Fakes. I don't like the thought of eating real eggs that have been handled and knocked around outside or at room temperature in the house half the day, and I don't like wasting real eggs. Besides that, we lost a few eggs in my grandma's basement as kids, and they were fond months later. One was in a shoe in her closet, and man how it did smell! We fill the plastic ones with candy, and eventually all the candy gets dumped out or eaten, but the eggs can still be hidden.

  • We do both.. we only have 1 daughter so we do a little of each. 6 plastic eggs and 6 real eggs.

  • We used to do real ones, but DD gets such a kick out of getting the goodies out of the plastic ones in the organized egg hunts we go to that we started doing the plastic ones.
