    Does anyone know where I can get my hands on some fake eggs....those girls are hiding their eggs from me. I have also heard of using golf balls, has anyone tried either of these?

    I have used both............most crafty places will have fake, or wooden eggs............golf balls did it for me.......and will keep a snake from coming back too.............

    My girls preferred the golf balls over the fake eggs.

    I used the colored plastic easter one---they worked okay. I wonder if it caused any egg envy for the ladies? [​IMG]
