I'm the type to organize and get things put away, right away lol So after the candy is organized (wrapped candies, loose candies, and suckers of course!) I realized after all of Dd's easter egg hunts that we had like a gazillion of those little plastic easter eggs! I mean, what do you actually DO with them once Easter is over? Then I found this savior of a website! Happy Easter!

Do you wonder what to do with those plastic Easter eggs? We decided to put together a comprehensive list of what to do with those plastic easter eggs once you are done using them for Easter.

Ways to Recycle Plastic Easter Eggs

10. Make fun ice cubes for drinks or a party.

11. Use for impromptu scavenger hunts.

12. Pack earrings or jewelry in so it is not loose in your luggage.

13. Use these as decors for your Christmas tree. Make it a fun Christmas project with your kids to decorate the eggs for Christmas.

17. Use them to store hair ties, barrettes, bobby pins, strechy head bands and other hair accessories.

Thank you!  I put them in a ziploc and I will use them next year.  I'm thinking of putting little prizes in there and having DD pick one out if she earns so many stars on her behavior board.

Great ideas!

 Those are good ideas. I always throw them out and re-buy them next year.
