How cool would it be to get a filled Easter Egg in the mail? Totally cool, right?!?! And not if you are just a kid. I sent these off to my niece and nephew (who are both in their twenties) and some friends (who are in their forties) and to my kids. Heck, I couldn’t leave them out.
They were easy to do and hardly cost anything. I figure the reaction that will come from opening up the mailbox and finding an egg in there is worth a couple of dollars.
What you will need:
* plastic eggs. Big ones, not the traditional egg sized ones. I bought these at the Dollar Store and they were filled with Pop Rocks. I dumped the Pop Rocks out (and will use those at our Easter Egg Hunt.
* Candy. You could go cheap and buy Dollar Store candy but I don’t like the no named chocolate. So I bought Twix, Snickers, Tootsie Rolls, etc. You don’t need very much candy in each egg.
* A little note saying who it’s from.
Fill the eggs. Add an address label and tape shut. Then take them to the Post Office and watch their faces when you drop these on the counter and say “I’d like to mail these please.”
Of course I had to mail some to my kids! That wouldn’t be right if they missed out on the fun.
Now I’m wondering what I can mail next……
