DIY Rubber Cement Easter Eggs

Who doesn’t like peeling rubber cement off of things. Rubber Cement Easter Eggs are just one more fun variation on the traditional way for the kids to prepare their colorful eggs for the Easter basket.


Some theorists have traced Easter egg hunts back to the Pennsylvania Dutch of the 1700s who believed that a hare called ‘Oschter Haws’ laid eggs in the grass. Therefore, kids would build nests (which many symbolize today with the fake green “grass” that is placed at the bottom of the Easter basket) and search for the eggs.
