It's a Little Late for Decorated Eggs, But...
These "shaker" eggs were made from inexpensive, connecting plastic eggs, with dry beans inside the "loud" ones and uncooked rice inside the "quiet" ones. Clever teacher, Carol Grubb, attached some Velcro to make the eggs easier for little hands to hold.
We can easily grasp these eggs without assistance, but tiny toddler hands sometimes have difficulty keeping a firm grip. Gotta shake, shake, shake those eggs while Miss Carol leads us in singing some lively songs.
