Surprise Eggs

I suppose I should start thinking about Easter, it is only a few days away. At least I have my menu planned! And it's about time those lingering Christmas decorations got put away (I'm looking at you, dusty candy canes.)

In the meantime, here's some sweet egg projects I've seen in blogging land. It would appear filled eggs are all the rage this year. Hurry up and make some so you can be cool too!

Smashing eggs never sounded so hip! This fun activity was spotted on Oh Happy Day by Rebecca Wright. Basically, a whole bunch of eggs are filled with something normal-ish, like cereal, but one egg is filled with something special, like glitter or confetti. The eggs are hidden and found like a typical Easter egg hunt, and then the fun begins. All the players get to smash their eggs onto other's heads. Whoever's head is christened with the glitter wins a prize, like a chocolate bunny. Check out the full project instructions and some photos of the egg smashing!

This egg is filled with something sweeter than candy, a heartfelt note. Found on Poppytalk via Going Home to Roost, there's step-by-step photos on how to empty the egg and package it up pretty.

Heart of Light demonstrates her version of the equally lovely project by Not Martha. These eggs are filled with candy, and would delight any recipient.
