Plastic Easter eggs are fun, but what do you do with them once they've all been hunted down and the treats inside have been consumed?  Over at Dollar Store Mom, Heather shared a fun idea that will keep the kids entertained until long  after the Easter Bunny has come and gone.  She used an egg as the base to create a fun little marionette puppet!  If you haven't checked out Dollar Store Mom yet, this is a perfect excuse to head over there!   [how to make a plastic Easter egg marionette]
