What You Need:

  • Empty egg carton, washed in hot water, then dried
  • Pen or marker
  • Small food items (raisins, cereal, chocolate chips, candies) or buttons

What You Do:

Write the numbers 1 to 12 on the individual sections of an egg carton. Have your child count out each number using small food items. Then have her fill each numbered section with the correct number of items. Once the sections are filled, work in reverse, having your child identify each number, count the pieces, and then eat them! You can line the egg carton with aluminum foil if you are worried about the cleanliness of the carton.
