Instead of throwing the plastic Easter eggs away after your Easter egg hunt, here are seven ways to recycle plastic Easter eggs that your preschooler will love. They can have fun with their creative side before packing them away for next year. Learn letters, make alien bugs, a pretty Mother’s Day craft or even use them for a science experiment. These plastic eggs are full of possibilities and let’s face it – we always buy too many every year.
Make these super cute Egg Bugs (above) with leftover plastic eggs, pipe cleaners and stickers! These were a huge hit with my Sunday school kids last year!

Introduce letters to your toddler.
