Saving Easter Eggs that won't close!

Have you ever left something to do for your kids until the last minute? Yeah, me neither Winking smile. So, somehow the other night at 9pm I finally got around to filling the Easter eggs for a play date scheduled the next morning.

I thought I did so well—I needed a non-candy item for the eggs since these are for small toddlers and babies—Do you know how hard it is to find a non-candy item that will fit inside an Easter egg?  It’s pretty difficult- choices are sparse!

Anyway, I found these little whistles at the Dollar Tree that were the PERFECT size!

Or so it appeared.

Well, after I put the Little Man to bed I remembered planned to stuff the eggs for the next morning.  But, there was a tiny issue- the eggs would not close all the way with the whistle inside!

Soooooo close- but no deal. Sad smile What on Earth was I going to do after 9pm on a Sunday night- I definitely was not making another trip to the store to search for some other treat for the eggs!

Luckily I had some washi tape thanks to my box o’ goodies from Consumer Crafts from the Pin It to Win It #CraftWishList contest going on right now (click here for details). No, this isn’t a sponsored post- I just LOVE sharing my Consumer Crafts goodies!

So I grabbed some washi tape and just taped the Easter eggs shut.  Problem solved! And, I think they look cuter this way anyway!  So, if you’re stuck on Easter Eve with treats that are too big for your eggs- just grab some washi tape and tape away!
