How to make it:

  2. Separate the plastic egg and use the bottom half. 

  3. Take a small piece of Play dough and fill the bottom of the egg ¾ of the way.  Gently insert your photo into the Play dough.  The weight of the dough should keep your egg from tipping over.

  4. Cover the Play dough with Easter grass, pressing some into the dough.  Place your cute little eggs in a grass lined Easter basket or pretty bowl.  Optional:  Make a little sign using the Happy Easter sign by mounting on construction paper and taping to a Popsicle stick.
