Got EGGS? Have FUN!

Barbara, Evergreen Library

It's that time of year again...when your house is filled with eggs, eggs, and more eggs. What do you do with all those eggs?

Here are some fun ideas that your whole family will enjoy: Make a yearly tradition of dying eggs for your Easter egg hunt. Your kids are never too young or too old to enjoy making that special egg! Get creative, the sky's the limit. What do you do with the leftover egg cartons? Take a nature hike and let your child fill the individual holders with "treasures" found along the way. It's a great way to keep everything together and organized.

After the candy has been eaten and the plastic eggs have lost their appeal...fill them with rice or beans...and now you have musical shakers. Music promotes language acquisition, listening skills, memory, and motor skills. Plus, music is an essential Every Child Ready to Read practice! And if you still need more ideas...there's always scrambled or over easy!
