I just wanted to drop in and with a little reminder to get your eggs in the mail this year!

Find details on sending eggs via post here and here. Find USPS’s current package rates (make sure you use package rates and not letter rates) right here.

We have been planning this all year! So excited. We have our jumbo eggs but I wonder… where did you get the tape to make sure the eggs stay shut?

It might be Spring designed packing tape! :)

So adorable. I did this a few weeks ago as an invite to Easter for my nephews and niece. Only thing is it took 10-16 days to arrive! And that was traveling from one end of Massachusetts to the other and from MA to New York (i.e. not across the country). The bottles I sent have still not arrived. Curious why first class postage on odd shaped packages takes so long. Still the kids all loved it and I can’t wait for Easter!

I am so excited to finally be mailing my first batch of happy mail! I have been trolling this site for months, and I love all of these ideas! I look forward to more awesomeness! I posted the pictures of what I am sending in my eggs at our facebook fan page: http://www.facebook.com/fishsticksandkidsense. I plan on posting a blog about it when I go to the post office tomorrow and get it stamped up to send!! I would be absolutely honored if you would check out the pictures of my eggs :) Thanks for the great ideas, and please keep them coming!

I guess my local post office is not really into this idea. I took my eggs in today and the postal worker told me that I absolutely could not send them through the mail. I argued for a few minutes, but he was adamant. He said they were too small and would be destroyed (I was using the jumbo eggs, same as pictured above). Does anyone else live in Chicago and know a nice post office that will mail my eggs!?

Hi, Amber Lee! I am Miki and I’ve commented on your wonderful blog before, but this time I wanted to tell you that I have actually sent a lot of packages and they have all reached their recipient so far! :D I sent Easter eggs, bottles, boxes and even a transparent ball :). Here’s the link to a blog post I published a while ago in case you want to check it out ;).
