But, I corrected that with my own children, and made them homemade ones every year, and hid eggs.
Something else that I learned, was about hiding eggs...if you aren't careful, they won't be found and will attract animals, or your own dogs would find them, or no one will find them and they will go bad!
I liked the plastic eggs, (we colored eggs anyway, but more to have fun doing it, and then to eat.) because A - They do not go bad or attract animals, lol! And, B - I could color code them.
For example, child #1 gets pink eggs, #2 gets purple eggs, and #3 gets yellow eggs. That way, the 8 year old can have their eggs hidden better than the 4 year olds. They were to ignore other colored eggs, and just find 'their' color. That way, the 4 year old stood 1/2 a chance of finding eggs, too.
Plus, it was fun because I could put candy and change in them.
What I learned is that real grass contains moisture, even when it doesn't seem like it. So, when you fill a basket with it, and nestle in jelly beans, etc., the jelly beans and such end up wet and sticky, and the colors run off of them, dyed eggs, etc. I had no idea! You can use it, but the sticky, dye running mess wasn't worth it.
