Our egg trees and an unlikely enemy

My plastic eggs were hijacked while I was attempting to be crafty and decorative.

The guilty parties were awfully cute so I decided to wait my turn.

BBD: {truly stymied} Where are your eggs?

Note: the overflowing basket in his possession.

The imaginative play that took place with the stolen and empty eggs was intriguing.

The children are convinced that the Eater Bunny himself is after their ill gotten gains. I guess a life of crime can make you paranoid.

BBD: We gotta hide from the Easter Bunny quick! We gotta hide our eggs!

CB: We’re gonna hibernate our Easter eggs!

It can also lead to misusing large words. {case precedent: inconceivable! You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means--if you do not get this reference I am disappointed in you}

After the children went to bed, my crafting got to continue and the next day they helped {actual help in CB's case, "help" in BBD's}.

I was pleased that Booger Butt Destructo's involvement, aka swinging eggs around like a mad man, only resulted in a single casualty.

And... Wah-lah!

CB: I think the Easter Bunny is pretty much real.

We had attempted to lure the Easter Bunny out into the open with baby carrots. It wasn't until later a family friend educated us on why our exploit failed.

To catch the Easter Bunny, you need
Jellybean bait.


Making the eggs is so easy...

to make the eggs:
*cut varying lengths of different ribbon

* seal the edges
* tie a knot in one end and hot glue it to the top of a plastic egg
* the other end of the ribbon is to be tied around a branch
