From LCM member Robbie Shorts: Every year at moms we get together to color eggs. I like to do mine different. The body, wheels and tanks are styro-foam or plastic eggs. The trailer and bumpers are from a wooden door shim. The lights, cotton balls. And those monster stacks are Mc Donalds straws.  How cool is this?  We hope you enjoy!
