For the eggs, I hit up Fred Meyer and found these translucent glittery guys. They were also pretty cheap at $1.99 a pack.
Then it was just a matter of soaking the beads overnight and color sorting the next morning.
Although that step isn’t really necessary, they look pretty cool all mixed together too.
Easter morning we’ll crack them open and dump them in a bowl or bin of some sort.
UPDATE: Check out how our eggs went over with the kids here!
