Change up the traditional egg hunt with these GIANT eggs! Wait until you see their faces. Priceless!
We've done this for the past few years in lieu of Easter baskets. Plus it's a super fun way to give non candy treats or gifts.
I found them at Micheal's craft store. I used a 40% coupon and made two visits (one coupon per visit) to get them a little cheaper. I just saw them today and I think they are $19 and you get 4 or 5. They are like nesting dolls, one large egg and each one fits inside the other.
We still do smaller eggs but you are limited on what will fit. I have gotten really creative and crammed things that normally wouldn't fit. BUT these make the possibilities endless!
I think we started going the more gift or novelty vs the candy. Don't get me wrong, they get sugared up like crazy with tons of candy.
See? Still tons of sugar. Last year I put little games, colored mustaches, magic tricks, and toys in all the big eggs. We let them go crazy for 10 mins with the candy and then it gets hidden with a few pieces the next day and maybe in their lunch for a couple days. At this point I throw it out. I feel a few days is all my willpower can stand. It's not Halloween, I buy the good stuff so ALL the candy is something I want.
Boys having fun with the egg halves. :)
