It’s so much FUN to hide stuff inside them and see the looks on their faces when they open it, not knowing what they will get.

The most POPULAR items seem to be candies and money… heheh.

My FAVORITE candies to use are the seasonal ones like jelly beans, flower marshmallows and chocolate eggs.

Btw, I am completely SMITTEN with these flower marshmallows.

They are so pretty and colorful.

I am already dreaming of a cake, decorated with with these cuties.

My son is lately on a “nut kick” and SURPRISINGLY prefers eggs with nuts rather than candy!

Especially the ones with almonds.

But, I am NOT complaining and I am one happy mama…lol

This year, each kid in my family will get 3 Easter eggs glued in a mini wreath that’s stuffed with green crumpled paper. 

It looks just like a real nest with eggs in it!


I won’t be using too much glue so that kids can easily pull out the eggs and open them. 

I think it’s a nice way to present the eggs…

How do you guys present your eggs to the kiddos?
