Plastic Easter eggs as perfect-sized snack holders to take to school or work. Hide them in your cube to find later! (Non-perishable, of course) put in kid's lunchbox
Clever. Use plastic easter eggs as snack containers, I can just see the surprise on the kids face when they see this in their lunch box:)

Plastic eggs as snack holders - goldfish, cheerios for lunch box nearer to Easter
Repurpose plastic eggs as lunch snack containers.
If you have kids odds are that you have lots of plastic Easter egg containers strewn about your home. Instead of storing them until next year or (gasp) throwing them away use them as snack containers for kids or adults.
I admit it! In spite of all of the amazing resources out there to inspire some fun and creative lunch boxes, I fall into the rut of the same thing... every day. Why does it take so long to make lunches for three kids (and my poor husband when I feel like adding one more)? So I need some inspiration here. Based on some of the ideas I have seen online, I know that there are some simple ways to make the lunch box something your kids are excited to open up each day. A little love from mommy in the middle of their school day, right? So this collection of Lunch Box ideas is for me, but I know there are many of you who will appreciate the inspiration as well!

An adorable Easter treat!
Easter has really crept up on us fast this year! As a child, Easter was always one of my favorite holidays. I loved the thrill of running around the house searching for hidden sugary surprises. Sometimes my parents would even sneak in a few bigger treats like new shirts or toys. I would squeal in delight any time I would find a treat and would proudly show it off to my brother (of course it was always a competition for who could find the most treats). While I may be a little too old to join the Easter Egg hunt myself, it does not mean that I can’t re-live my Easter memories through younger relatives. Every time I carefully hide a chocolate filled plastic egg, I consider whether my childhood self would have been able to find that egg. And when I watch my young relatives search desperately for eggs it takes a great deal of effort for me not to join the hunt myself! Some great ideas for small treats to hide are: Chocolates (obviously!) Kid-friendly Jewelry (for the little fashionista) iTunes gift cards: a perfect practical gift for the tech-savvy kid. Package it creatively to add a little extra pizzazz. Stuffed animals: What kid doesn’t love a new cuddly friend! Moni Poni: This small fun hair accessory is great for young girls. It prevents their hair from getting tangled like in traditional hair elastics. The bright colours and shapes will make this stylish accessory a staple in any girl’s wardrobe. Of course, Easter is also a time for family. I am part Greek, and Greek Easter was definitely always a memorable experience. My favorite part was when, in Greek tradition, we would hold egg cracking competitions. This is a great activity (whether you’re Greek or not!). All you need is a bowl full of hardboiled eggs (these can be coloured with paint or dye). Two people arm themselves with an egg, line the ends of the eggs together and then tap them together. The first person whose egg cracks loses. It sounds pretty simple, but I remember how much joy it brought my family. You'd be surprised how difficult it was the crack those eggs! Some fun Easter Craft Ideas: Make a pair of paper bunny ears Make Easter Bunny sock puppets. Let the kid express themselves creatively by enacting Easter-themed puppet shows. Paint Easter eggs to look like favorite kid TV show characters. Nothing better than egg painting, Hannah Montana style. Make and decorate small Easter baskets filled with treats. These can be handed out to neighbors to help brighten their Easter. Share the Easter fun with others and the holiday will be even more memorable for you! I love this creative and delicious bunny themed treat. All you need is crackers, carrots, cream cheese, and pretzels. image courtesy of Kaboose These cute home-made Jelly Bean Chicks are a great gift for teachers, babysitters, neighbors, or friends. image courtesy of Kaboose What are your favourite Easter memories? Do you have any craft suggestions?

Brilliant! - Seal a plastic bag with the top of a water bottle or any plastic bottle and the lid. #organization #lifehacks
Seal a plastic bag with the top of a water bottle or any plastic bottle and the lid. Great idea but I'm wondering...in whose house does an open back of chocolate chips last long enough to need sealing?
Good idea, but why couldn't you pourthe chocolate chips into thewater bottle.... Brilliant! - Seal a plastic bag with the top of a water bottle or any plastic bottle and the lid.
What a GREAT idea! Cut the top off of a plastic bottle (20 oz. or 2 ltr.). Slip your open bag of chocolate chips, noodles, etc. through the neck, fold it over and then screw on the bottle cap. Freshness stays in.
Such a great idea! Now you can re-seal your chocolate chips to save them longer and have a make-your own funnel to pour them out! Just seal a plastic bag with the top of a water bottle or any plastic bottle and the cap.
Seal a plastic bag with the top of a water bottle or any plastic bottle and the lid. Going to try it out. But not on chocolate chips...never any leftover. :)
Good idea--seal a plastic bag with the top of a water bottle or any plastic bottle and the lid! Seriously! Who thinks of these things?
