Have a Pokemon fan in your house?  Both of my girls love playing Pokemon Go (and the little one loves ANYTHING Pokemon related), so I came up with a fun idea for Poke Ball Easter eggs for this year's egg hunt.

Gotta find them all!

Pokemon Poke Ball Easter Egg Tutorial

I don't even play Pokemon myself, but I love how these Poke ball Easter eggs turned out!

Materials for Pokemon Poke Ball Easter Eggs:

I originally bought both white and red eggs.  I thought I could just mix and match the tops and bottoms of the eggs, and wouldn't have to mess with painting.  I was wrong.  Even though all the eggs had the same alleged dimensions, I couldn't find both white and red eggs from the same manufacturer, and they were just different enough that it didn't work.  At all.  Luckily, my backup plan of spray painting half of the white eggs worked magnificently.  I was really pleased with the coverage, the shine, and the durability of the paint on the plastic egg.

The treats inside the Easter egg fit the Pokemon theme, too.  I got some delicious raspberry gummy candies, and tiny Pokemon toy figurines (this is the brand I bought).

Look how perfectly they fit in the plastic Easter eggs!

Nest the black and white circle stickers to create the (I don't know, is that a button?) on the poke ball.  It was easier to nest the stickers before putting them on the egg.

Wrap a band of black electrical tape around the filled Easter egg, and add the sticker button, and you're done!  Let the hunt begin!
