Don't Throw it Out!

September 2005
Scholastic Parent & Child;Sep2005, Vol. 13 Issue 1, p12
The article focuses on the use of egg cartons for providing packaging and distributing knowledge to children. Young children love to sort, and egg cartons are perfect for sorting change, marbles, dried pasta or beans, buttons, pom poms, rocks, shells, and other small items. Cardboard egg cartons take well to tempera paint and glue. Cut, tear, stack, and decorate or turn upside down to make a cool control panel. Styrofoam egg cartons are fun for bath play. Pour water into each cup from a plastic pitcher, or use it as a boat for small plastic animals.
