Make a Stack

Age: 1-2, 3-5
Location: Indoor Set-up: Planned


  • Scissors
  • Empty egg carton
  • Optional: Paint, markers or decorative materials


Cut an egg carton into eight separate pieces by cutting around each off the areas to hold the egg. If you have more than one egg carton, you can accumulate a lot of different pieces to play with!


Give the different pieces to your child to stack and try to make different sculptures. If you have paints, markers, or any decorative materials, you can help your child decorate each piece to make colorful sculptures.
