Before boiling your eggs, wrap the outer skin from an onion around the egg. You can use red or yellow onions. Next wrap the egg and onion skin in paper towel. Secure with a rubber band. Boil eggs as normal. This also works well if you want to remember which eggs in your fridge are hard boiled.

As a child it was demanded that we go out on the 5th and clean the street and yard of every piece of debris. When the kids groused about it last year I told them to pretend it was and Easter egg hunt. They went hog-wild trying to find the most "eggs" and yelling "I found another egg".
I haven't tried this with other things such as picking up toys but I suppose it could work for that too.
