Easter egg recycling ideas to keep them busy in the holidays

OK so I don't know about anyone else but we seen to have more than enough Easter eggs in our house to last us until next year so today we have set about using a few up, getting messy and being (a bit) creative.

I am not reinventing the wheel here as you will see these ideas are oldies but goodies and I thought we would share anyway.

So, first of all we had great fun with the egg opening and chocolate smashing, melting and spoon licking to make these beauty's.

Easter nest anyone?
I'm not going to include a recipe as I'm sure you all know how its done but we had fun doing it so I'm sharing all the same!

The next bit (what to do with all the shinny papers) was surprisingly good fun.  We drew our best Easter egg designs onto sugar paper, got out the glitter glue and ripped the shinny paper and some tissue paper up into little bits.  

Our inspiration came from yesterdays decopatch experiment which also went surprisingly well (for me and children's crafts that is)!

Fill in the different sections of your Easter egg design with either a mosaic of glued down shiny paper or screwed up tiny balls of tissue paper, like this:

The creation station
Et Voila!

Now all you have to do is leave it to dry and hang it up on your fridge door for a lovely Easter decoration!

As we STILL have a small Easter egg shop in our living room we are also planning to give a version of this  Easter Bark a try later in the week or maybe some Easter chocolate tiffin so keep an eye out.
