Egg Carton Fun

Egg cartons are great for sorting. Today O got her egg carton off her shelf and put shells in it. She was very engrossed in this work. I prompted her to take the shells out and put them back in the basket after she was finished. She counted as she put them back...2, 3, 4, 6, 9. For some reason she refuses to say 1 :) See Montessori Mama's blog for more fun things to do with egg cartons.


  1. That's funny. My son always counts, "1, 2, 3, 8, 11." I know he knows what the in between numbers are, but he usually chooses to skip them.

  2. I love the concept of using the egg carton - the best part is we go through a lot of eggs so we almost always have one lying around! I like your blog - i've added you to my blogroll at


  3. Thanks, PJ. I just checked out your blog,and I'm looking forward to reading it often!
