25 Unexpected Plastic Egg Crafts to Make After Easter

I've shared before about my annual Easter egg dilemma. My husband says I have "I-Might-Need-It-Itis" - where I refuse to discard things that I can still see some value in. Because, of course, I might need it! Sometimes I just know something still has value...I'm just not sure how. May this be the year the mockers cease because I've got 25 great ways you can re-use plastic Easter eggs in ways that don't scream "I used to be an Easter egg!" Now you can look at the egg hunts your kids are going to as "free craft supply accumulation missions" instead of just sugar fests.
