With Spring, Easter and Egg Hunts fast approaching, I thought, why not an egg hunt for the wild little ones we share the earth with?
It's a great way to get the whole family outside and what a fun way to explore nature and hide a few gifts for her all at the same time.
Start with raw eggs, always remember to wash your hand when you are done handling them.
Take small scissors and poke a hole in the top then carefully cut the top of the egg off.
Empty the egg, then wash with soap and water, the shells hold up well, they are really a great shape to experience but one or two may be lost to the process, that is an experience in itself, maybe a giggle too.
Once the shells are dry fill them with Birdseed for Wild Birds, then place them back in the egg crate to transport them to their hiding destination...
... outside in your back or front yard...
... parks where they allow you to feed the birds...
... or your neighborhood (with you neighbors permission). Have fun exploring and noticing what new life is beginning to appear.
I hid ours in the native garden that is just waking up, then watched. The wild hare and the birds found all the eggs by the next day and the shells had all disappeared.
To egg hunts tame and wild!
