Well shock horror as it’s not quite Easter yet and we are already filled to the brim with Easter sweeties. Oops!
My son has been obsessed with plastic eggs for months (cheers YouTube) but I’ve refused to buy him one as I think they’re a bit of a con. Salvation for toddlers as usual comes in the shape of grandparents so he was super happy when one arrived in the post from my mum. After swiftly dealing with the sweets inside it he didn’t want to throw it out straight away and frankly I wasn’t super keen to add to the landfill that quickly so I thought we’d upcycle it.
Then we wrapped washi tape around the closing and then all around the outside to make sure it was held in place. Job done,plastic egg maracas made, landfill saved and an awful lot quieter than the peppa pig recorder my husband was duped into buying last week. Yes, I know.
