Now, I don’t claim my nursery bag is perfection as I’m constantly tweaking/adding/switching/fixing props…as I’m about to show you below:
I’ve landed on the perfect solution (okay, credit goes to my hubby for this one!!). Enter the colored electrical tape:
I got mine from Amazon here:
Let’s not forget the violet:
My husband recommends the Scotch brand over any other. And since we are dealing with 1-3 year olds who apparently can get at anything they set their minds to, I didn’t mess with trying to go cheap ;).
This tape beats out all other tape including packaging tape, washi tape, masking tape AND any other sort of glue (most especially that blasted hot glue!). Trust me, I’ve tried them all. The reason being, electrical tape will stretch around that curved center, hugging it tight so you won’t have any pinched edges like you would with the packaging and washi tape. When you stretch it on there tight (I recommend going around the circumference twice like I’ve pictured below), it isn’t going ANYWHERE. It’s A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!
With all those Easter eggs on sale this week and LOTS o’ time in front of General Conference that you need to stay awake for ;), go grab up a few packages and some colored electrical tape and fix your egg shakers for good!
If you are short on time, simply grab these pre-made egg shakers from Amazon:
