Now that Easter has come and gone, I wanted to remind you of this post from last year on exactly what to do with all those plastic eggs.
I also thought you might be interested in how our water bead eggs went over. This morning I let the kids break them apart over some big bowls set out on towels. You can see they took quite an interest in them.
Once all the eggs were empty, the kids set to work foraging through the kitchen for some exciting tools to use (the rolling pin was vetoed shortly after this photo was taken).
They did a lot of experimenting and the whisk was a favorite because of the way the beads stuck inside of it.
Scooping with, and refilling, the eggs was also fun. In the end, though, nothing could top the feeling of the cool gelatinous beads slipping through their little fingers.
