Eco Alternative to Plastic Easter Eggs

20 Minutes

I was just at the grocery store looking for Jelly Bellies to put in my kids' Easter Baskets. Holy cow, I did not realize it cost $5 for a little box. So, onward I moved into the bulk section where they were 1/2 the price per pound. But what to do about a container for them? I personally think it's annoying to dig through basket grass to find each jelly bean.
The obvious choice would be those plastic eggs that are super cheap - and that will never biodegrade and like I said are cheap so it's not like you're going to decorate with them.
My eureka moment hit when I came up to my office and visited my craft supplies.
I decided to make containers out of my toilet paper tubes.
