First Class Eggs

This weekend the kiddos and I took a minute to assemble some Easter treats for their cousins.  I saw this last year somewhere (I wish I could remember where) and thought it was a darling idea.  Hopefully all 3 eggs will end up in the right place.


 
We started with Jumbo Plastic Eggs - these we had on hand from last Easter.  Then we filled each egg with goodies: candy, stickers, balloons, a hair bow, and dress-up gloves (thanks Target $1 Spot).


We taped around the center, added labels, and slapped on some postage.  Since these eggs weighted less than 2 oz. it only cost about $1.45 to send these little cuties. See that nice roll of postage stamps in the tin box?  Those are from my WEDDING!  Yes, my wedding nearly 7 years ago.  They're only worth about $.37 cents each.  This project seemed like an easy way to start using up some of the stamps! 

This kids had fun helping me assemble and stamp these.  I can't wait for the the postman to deliver these eggs.  I guess in a way it makes him a little like the Easter Bunny!

Take care,
