"Ostara/O'Blessin' Eggs (Leprechauns)
Sure and you'll enjoy boonful blessings between St. Paddy's & Ostara! Crack eggs in half, empty, rinse, and dry overnight. Write tiny Leprechaun blessing notes, such as "pot o' gold," "wish comes true," "full pockets," "spring love," and the like on green paper. Cut them into small strips. Fill the eggs with these blessing notes, and paste the shells shut with colored tissue paper splints. Let them dry. Break an O'Blessin' Egg over a person's head to give them good luck in the spring season. Have the person cup their hands to catch some of the blessings. The ones that are caught will come true!"

The egg shells: they crack better if you tap them against a straight sided dish, not a slanted one. I kept them on top of the fridge, so they were out of the way & not in danger of being crushed.
Brown egg shells seemed to be more sturdy, but there wasn't a huge difference.
I used nice paper for the blessings:

And, lastly, a special egg for the tweetie bird, my boyfriend:
