Week 12: Egg carton fun

28 Apr

Ok, I’m a little behind in the blogging department, but Princess Peanut and I have still been doing our activities. So we will have to play catch-up with our posting.

Here is week 12…


Our inspiration for this activity came from 

The Educator’s spin on it  and Dirt and boogers

We managed to get a bit of a collection up of plastic eggs, so I thought we should put them to good use. Princess Peanut is a bit fascinated with little things fitting inside things. She is also loving “in” and “out”. So armed with this I thought this activity would be perfect. (I’m also sure I have pinned another pin along these lines, but do you think I could find it!?).



The only problem with our activity was the eggs kept popping apart. But I didn’t want to seal them up in case we want to use them for another activity.

Princess Peanut was excited to see her little eggs all the same.



This also gave her an opportunity to practice closing the lid and opening it again. Very excited learning indeed. 



Princess Peanut loves to open the eggs, but gets frustrated when she can’t put them back together again.



After a little while I introduced pom poms! So pretty and enticing! And they also feel funny. She did try tasting one and quickly decided that they were much more fun to play with.



Here’s Princess Peanut putting the pom poms in the egg carton.


SUMMARY/ VERDICT: a great activity that kept Princess Peanut engaged for around 20 minutes or so! She was quite happy to turn her back on me and explore without any help and would turn around every so often to show me something or ask my help to put the eggs together.


EXTENSIONS/ ADAPTIONS: I must remember to get some more pom poms as she thought these were great. I should have a whole set the same size. We might also try some other things like cotton balls. This will be a great activity to do when we are exploring 1 to 1 correspondence in the future 😉
