So listen, the Easter Bunny knows how addicted my kids are to watching grown people peel Playdoh off of giant plastic eggs on YouTube. I don’t know how he knows this, but then again, I also don’t know how he makes it to all those houses to hide all those eggs in one night.

I’m not one to question the EB, is what I’m saying.

Being the knowing bunny that he is, he brought our 3 kids Playdoh Surprise Eggs in lieu of baskets this year. It’s obvious he’s a badass. I mean, just look at these.


Now, being the unknowing sort that I am, I had to ask him how he created these, and here’s what little he could tell me:

For those big giant plastic eggs (which he has seen at Target during Easter season, but are also available on Amazon) it takes about 6 full size cans of Playdoh to cover each one. He said he rolled out 3 cans at a time (with a wine bottle, actually, because the wooden rolling pin we had in our drawer was sticking to the Playdoh, and he was really glad I was the sort to have a wine bottle laying around). Then he covered 1/2 the egg, rolled the other 3 out, covered the other half, cut off the excess, and patched and smooshed a bit.

The smaller egg, also on Amazon, only took about 3 cans to cover.

Then he used other colors to make the various decorations and spell out their names. He’s really creative like that.

Also, he kept them from drying out from the time he dropped them off until morning by covering them with a couple garbage bags.


Now, as for what’s inside, I’m going to list it all out below this short video of the kids ripping into them on Easter morning.


Of course there is a video! For one, the kids insisted. Do Playdoh Surprise Eggs even exist if there is not a video of them being torn apart? We think not. Also, looking forward to becoming an overnight millionaire after all the kids find this on YT and watch it 150 times without blinking.

The big Krause kids have been BEGGING me to “do REAL Playdoh surprise eggs” for months, so I am SUPER happy the EB brought these. They had a wonderful time opening them, and remain mildly interested in the contents 36 hours later. Really all I could hope for. Thanks, EB!

I did a live Facebook video to show you guys how you can make your own Playdoh Surprise Eggs… or you can let the bunny know where to go for inspiration 😉 Watch below and you’ll see exactly how EXCITED Lolo is about opening his egg.

  • We met a family from Switzerland today. Their little girl and Wallace became fast friends, and we spent a long time talking about parenthood and travel and many other things we have in common. After a while, the dad asked me if perhaps I had an extra nappy (diaper) they could have. They are hard to come by in the limited park supply stores at #bigbendnationalpark and they were down to their last one with another night tent camping ahead of them. I went to our truck and got the two we brought with us. The dad thanked me, and then I thanked him for asking me. How wonderful that moment was on the side of a Texas mountain- to bond with people from a world away over toddlers and diapers. #agooddayinthevillage #happyloudlife

  • I celebrate every time this baby puts solid foods in his mouth because he is OBSESSED with breastfeeding, you guys. I don’t even understand how I’m sustaining this wrecker with my breast milk at this point.  I’m not interested in weaning him, but it would be nice if he would enjoy something other than my boobs sometimes.
  • Perfecting his selfie skills! 🤣 Have your little ones tried to do this? Cutest milestone! ETA: you might have a 4 year old when you don’t even notice nose picking in pictures anymore. #loloyolo
