We live out in the country … so there are endless places to hide Easter eggs outside, but one of our favorite things to do in anticipation of Easter, is to hang Easter eggs in the trees. We decorate the tree right outside our kitchen window so it kind of makes for a festive scene leading up to Easter.
Last year, I found these plastic eggs on clearance, and they even already had holes in the end of them. If your eggs don’t have holes in them, it is usually quite easy to use a nail and a hammer to pop a little hole into the top of each egg. String is a great option for hanging your eggs with because if they somehow end up getting left outside, the birds are sure to use them for nest building.
We hang empty eggs… and then on Easter morning the kids find all kinds of treats in these eggs…last year they even found a few coins! The kids took their coins to church for the offering plate… so it was a great tie into Easter and our Sunday service.
