Once the Easter craze has worn off you’re going to be sitting with a lot of Easter-themed trash and leftovers that may seem pretty useless; more specifically, those plastic Easter eggs. I really don’t like plastic because it has such a terrible impact on the environment, so I’m really quick to jump on the chance repurpose anything plastic… so here’s how to reuse your plastic eggs once the chocolate-filled holiday has come and gone: turn them into fireflies!
This is a fun little craft to do with the kids – you just stick a LED tealight into the egg, and then, with the help from the kids, add all the little odds and ends to make it look like a little bug. You’ll probably have most of the supplied laying around in your craft box anyway, so you won’t have to actually go out to buy anything: silver duct tape for the wings, white labels (or paint) for the eyes, pipe cleaners for the legs and antennae, and a thumbtack or needle to poke holes so that you can insert the pipes cleaners.
It’s as easy as that! The little ones are sure to love them, and they’ll look simply adorable creeping about in your garden or porch.
