An egg is an egg except when it’s Easter. Even then, tradition doesn’t stray far from hard boiled eggs, plastic eggs, and candy eggs. But there are so many more ways to make an oblate spheroid more festive.

Zombie eggs: A bit of mottled paint plus a grimace and your hard boiled egg is a zombie. Partially cracked — even better.

Crystal geode eggs: Science it up by growing crystals in an egg shell.

Lego eggs: Simply glue round breath mints to eggs and paint for strange egg-shaped Legos.

Paper bag eggs. Hide treats inside eggs made from paper grocery bags. These can be personalized to avoid the competitive madness known as the Easter egg hunt.
