So far half term has quite literally been a complete washout and being stuck indoors has meant that I have used up pretty much all of my rainy day activities! In an effort to do something vaguely educational with Aoife, I made these colour and counting games from egg cartons. Here’s what you will need:
COLOUR GAME: COUNTING GAME:
– small egg carton – large egg carton
– bag of coloured pom poms – pasta shapes (or dried beans, etc)
– markers or paint – pen
It took less than 10 minutes to make both box games, so it’s a really quick and simple activity to pull out on a rainy day. You can see how Aoife got on with the games here:
I am egg obsessed so I get through a couple of boxes a week! If you have any more ideas for egg carton games let me know!
