So Easter has came & gone. Does your house still have those pesky plastic eggs lingering around? For some reason my son has gained a weird attachment to them.
So if you happen to still have them, why not recycle the eggs? Perhaps skipping the toy aisle this week and turning them into a fun & educational game for your child?
And lucky for you today, I have the perfect tutorial to share that you can't say "That is too HARD!" or "I'm not crafty!"
Here is what you need: Plastic eggs (preferably all the same color but can also be mix-match) & colored pom-poms (two in each color)
I promise you this will be the easiest craft/game you will ever make!
What do you do? Nothing! Each egg gets a set of pom poms. So if you have 5 eggs, you will need 10 pom poms.
Just lay out your pom-poms like the below picture.
Cover them with your eggs.
Take turns with your child and lift up two egg shells, trying to find the matching pair.
And that's it! Repeat! Repeat! Repeat!
If you don't have pom poms, find other things that could be used as "pairs." Maybe coins, candy, cereal etc. As long as you have those eggs, you have a game.
Not bad for recycling, right?
