    Troy, are you sure the eggs were plastic?

    In the same timeframe my Mom always created an ‘indoor’ Easter Egg tree. The process was the following;

    -punch a tiny hole in each end of the egg.

    -blow on one end of the egg to eject the ‘inner egg stuff’ out the other end into a bowl. ( later to be used for breakfast )

    -dip hollow shells into various bowls of food colouring.

    -paint found branches white

    -stick food colour painted egg shells on painted branches.

    I suspect the inspiration may have come from Readers Digest or Lady’s Home Journal.

    Perhaps the California method was different.
