Five fun things to do with leftover Easter eggs

Looking for some good ideas for recycling leftover Easter egg chocolate, packaging and Kinder Egg cases?

We know it might sound like a ridiculous concept to most mums - leftover chocolate? - but if you've had a lot of egg-shaped gifts in your house this year you might, possibly have some that haven't been eaten yet.

And if you have small children it's likely that you'll have lots of the plastic Kinder Egg cases and cardboard packaging lying around. What exactly can you do with those apart from throwing them in the recycling?

Here are five quick and easy ideas for reusing and upcycling chocolate, boxes and packaging after Easter:

There is a multitude of child-friendly ideas for reusing Easter egg chocolate over on BBC Food, from lollies through to fridge cake (prepare by reading our tips on baking with toddlers first)

We also love these chocolate ideas for the grown-ups over on Stylist - homemade truffles or peanut butter torte, anyone?

There's a whole universe of things you can do with the leftover cardboard from the Easter egg boxes - we love these cool cardboard box houses - and if you're looking for something on a smaller, simpler scale then try a cardboard box camera or cardboard animal masks.

If your house is filled with the plastic Kinder Egg cases, why not make Minons? This is a really simple idea for Kinder Egg Weebles, over on Red Ted Art's blog.

Or put the Kinder Egg cases to further good use and make Kinder Egg maracas. All you need are plastic spoons, colourful washi tape and rice. It'll take minutes and keep them entertained for hours.

Have fun! Let us know if you make any of these. And if you're still on holiday, check out our rainy day activity ideas or Easter activity round-up
