An Egg-cellent Idea

Remember those really cool building blocks in kindergarten? You know… The great big cardboard blocks that look like bricks… I loved those. I really did.

And then, while looking through my Aunt Paula’s old photo albums on a recent visit, I saw the best building block idea!

Egg cartons.

And it just happened, my mom had been saving egg cartons for me to keep our fresh eggs in when we give them away. I had a stack about 2 feet tall!

The kids were a bit skeptical about my idea for “big fun.” Um, mom… These are egg cartons…

And then, I showed them this.

And the fun began.

Also, serious motor skill development for my two year old…

Cooperative play, brothers are the best friends!

Demolition time was fun, with this amazing wrecking ball!

Have fun…. Every day!


  1. I knew it; my kids are more destructive than the average child. *sigh* My fault perhaps, but seriously, had I turned my kids loose with those, they wouldn't have been usable in an hour... We have a ton of cardboard ones, and they do use (and destroy) a few occasionally, but no styrofoam ones. Love all the pics of such fun!

  2. I'm going to have to start saving egg cartons! What a great idea!


Thank you so much for leaving me a comment. Comments make me so happy that I dance around the room! ;)
