    I'd like to blow out our first eggs and make Christmas Ornaments out of them (as suggested by a BYC member). I'd like to fill them with something so they are are less fragile. Any suggestions?

    You could add a tablespoon of puzzle saver glue or similar and rotate it around until all interior surface is covered. Invert and let drain and dry overnight. Also, could fill with sand or rice. You could consider coating the outside with the puzzle saver glue as well. It dries clear and would protect the egg.
