I found this activity on hands on as we grow – egg carton train for a toddler.
Made it a little more difficult for Elijah by writing letters and numbers on them so that he can thread them in sequence.
We used yarn to thread the cartons. I attached a safety pin to one end so that it’s easier to hold. ( please be super careful if you add pins especially if your kids put things in their mouth. Watch them and put it away as soon as the activity is done ! )
What you need :
- Egg carton
- Marker to write on the egg carton
- Yarn or pipe cleaner
- Safety Pin( optional )
Cut the egg cartoon into individual boxes and punch holes in them. Punch 2 holes in opposite sides.
Pin the yarn and thread the carton but in the right order !
He had fun playing with them too ! Attached it to his fire truck and pulled it around 😊
