3 Fun Things to do with Plastic Easter Eggs

As the years go by, it’s easy to accumulate a large collection of plastic Easter eggs. If you’ve got a few too many, here are some creative ways to craft with them!

Easter Egg Snake

Craft Supplies:

  • At least twelve two-piece plastic eggs with holes in both ends (most newer eggs have holes already in them)
  • Twine or waxed thread
  • Scissors
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Glue
  • Felt

How to Make It:

  1. Tie a knot at one end of the string or twine. Thread your first egg onto the twine, with the round end toward the knot and the open end toward the long part of the twine.
  2. Keep adding eggs so they’re nested in each other.
  3. To make the snake’s head, turn the last half-egg around so the open side matches the open side of the egg before it.
  4. Glue wiggle eyes onto the snake’s face.
  5. Add a felt tongue and think of a good name for your new friend!


Easter Egg Crafty Cup

Craft Supplies:

  • Three plastic Easter eggs
  • Craft glue (or hot glue – but only with an adult assistant’s help)
  • Stiff cardboard cut into 3-inch circles
  • Acrylic paint
  • Stick-on rhinestones or stickers

How to Make It:

  1. Paint each cardboard circle with the acrylic paint. Let the paint dry.
  2. Decorate each egg with stickers or rhinestones (or both!).
  3. Attach a cardboard circle to the bottom of each Easter egg so the egg will stand up.
  4. You can put lots of small items (like beads or wiggle eyes) into these adorable (and useful!) containers.

Easter Egg Swag

Craft Supplies:

  • At least 20 plastic eggs with holes in each end
  • Twine or string

How to Make It:

  1. Tie a knot at one end of the twine.
  2. String your eggs along the twine.
  3. Tie a knot at the other end of the twine.
  4. Hang up your swag!
