What To Do With An Egg Carton (Part 1)

Rainy weather + a three year old = creative mama.

This is one of those games that was born out of necessity one day when we couldn't go burn all of that extra energy off outside but I (really) needed a project that would keep my boy's interest for more than a few seconds. 

He totally loves "playing beads" and I love that he is polishing up on colors and sorting.

I find it to be therapeutic for me as well. Maybe I should pull the old beads out more often!

Normally we save this one for a rainy day--and we've had plenty of those lately--but the sun was out for a bit and we decided to take it outside.

Vitamin D. I needed it.

You'll start with a package of colorful beads. Dump them out. Aren't they pretty?

Using glue dots, attach a bead of each color to the inside rim of the egg carton's sections. This will guide your little one as he sorts.

Don't forget the bandana.


  1. I can tell I am going to enjoy your blog! :) This is great for learning colors and keeping them busy. Wonderful!
