While you are exploring your environment, make sure to keep your eyes open for things that look like eggs, they probably are!
The eggs of amphibians, such as frogs, toads, and salamanders, are most often found in the water and look like strings or blobs of translucent eggs, often with jelly-like stuff around them.
While looking on plant stems and leaves or under logs, you are also likely to come across the eggs of insects, spiders, or slugs and snails.
Spiders use silk to protect their eggs and developing young. These egg cases look like eggs but actually contain hundreds of tiny spider eggs.
