We cut out cups from egg cartons and painted them each different colours. Then we added googly eyes, foam pieces for noses and pipe cleaners. We filled with heart candy. The kids really enjoyed this project.

Use your egg cartons before you throw them out! When they are empty, write a different number in each space; either 1-12 or 0-11. Then place 2 beans, coins or other small items in them and close the lid. Shake and reopen. Wherever your items landed, make your kid add or multiply the numbers together. If they get it right, then they get a point, whoever gets the most points wins.
I just got back last night from a weekend of fun and games with my 5 year old granddaughter, Megan. We all know how little kids love to give presents to grown ups. She gave me some bells that she had made from a recycled paper egg carton. You just cut out the little cups and paint.
She also offered to let me borrow her extra tooth brush so I wouldn't have to walk all the way downstairs where my tooth brush was kept.
