Egg Carton Counting Game:
I used: an egg carton, scissors, printed numbers (writing them works too), glue stick, and dry beans or beads.
I cut out the numbers and glued them to inside of the egg cups.
Now count the beans and place them in the correct egg cup. My kids love using my kitchen utensils to play. They used a small ladles, measuring spoons and measuring cups.
The second game we made was Egg Carton Color Matching
We painted a egg carton different colors in each cup.
To play, we used kitchen tongs to place colored pom-poms in the correct matching egg cup.
The key to these games is allowing your kids to use fun things to move the beans and pom-poms.
