Finally someone has created the perfect Easter Egg alternative to the hollow plastic eggs my kids love to hunt -- wood. I envisioned a wooden alternative long ago, but couldn't find anyone who actually made or sold it until I came across the Golden Cockerel website this season. Each egg measures 2.75" and costs $3.60. A bit of an investment at first (because of course who won't want a dozen or two?) but they will eventually pay for themselves when they outlast those cheap, toxic plastic eggs that fall apart each year and leach toxins into your child's treats. Best thing about these wooden Easter eggs, is that kids (or grown ups) can get creative and design or paint them as they see fit.
