Everyday Ideas for Year-Round Fun with Plastic Eggs

Easter has come and gone, and you may have found some extra plastic eggs laying around the house. While you consider tossing them or saving them for next year, you can use these eggs daily to organize and safely store small items. Today, the team at N.E.T. Egg shares some ideas for year-round fun with plastic eggs.

Holding Small Items

Plastic eggs can be used to store small items that are commonly misplaced. Here are some things that eggs can hold:


Use a plastic egg to hold your favorite miniature-sized candy. The egg won’t take up much room in your purse, so keep it there for when you’re craving chocolate.

Loose Change

Instead of using a big container, try a plastic egg for storing your spare change. You can keep the egg in your car or on your dresser at home. It’ll be great for when you have enough quarters and dimes to buy a snack from the vending machine.  


It’s wise to carry a band-aid with you when you’re traveling or running errands. Band-aids can get crumpled up in a pocket, and they can be difficult to find when loosely kept in a big purse. Gently fold your band-aid, so it fits inside a plastic egg, and you’ll have easy access to it when needed.


Place a necklace in a plastic egg to keep it from getting tangled. You can also store multiple pairs of earrings in separate eggs and match the earring color to the egg’s color.

Board Game Pieces

Monopoly game pieces, in particular, are tiny. To prevent losing them, keep them in a plastic egg on the shelf.


Rather than stuffing them in a bulky wallet, you can safely store important receipts inside a plastic egg. If you need to make a return, you’ll be able to find the receipt fast.  

Donate Them

If you still find some eggs hiding under the couch and you aren’t sure what to do with them, consider donating them to a church. Churches and organizations often sponsor community egg hunts, and they’ll gladly put your extra eggs to good use.
