Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Repeat after us: this is not a contact sport. Elbows to yourself. No pushing the little kids, and— Above: They're off. Poor, unsuspecting lawn. As an alternative to plastic eggs, decorate reusable, hollow wooden eggs and fill them with prizes. Two-inch-high Split Wooden Pullet Eggs are $4 to $6.50 apiece at Woodworks. A seven-piece set of Unpainted Blank Nesting Eggs is $25 at Golden Cockerel. Image via Martha Stewart . Above: Nothing says "party" like bunting. Consider reusable cotton Pastel Rabbit Bunting (L) with loops for hanging; it's $36 from Acme Party Box. A Rabbit Finger Puppet (R) makes an excellent consolation prize for the little kids who didn't find as many eggs; it's $7 at Acme Party Box. Above: Why does this Rabbit Candy Box look so cranky? And why does that make us love him more? Hand-painted German papier-mâché, he's available seasonally and would make a lovely, if somewhat disapproving, centerpiece; $72 at Bell'Occhio. Above: Personally, we'd rather find Quip Cakes than candy inside an egg; it's a clever note pad with 150 tear-out sheets ($8.50 at Bell'Occhio). Above: Someone deserves a prize.

Above: The French Wire Egg Basket features handles that open and shut to cradle eggs. It's $29 at Williams-Sonoma. Above: Safe until next year. Image via Plain Old Kristi.
