We have been talking about eggs this past week in my class so I thought I would combine a little counting and printing with this activity…

I set what I call “egg carton stampers” out on the table. My egg carton stampers are cleaned and washed egg cartons cut into 1, 2, 3, and 4 strips of egg carton cups. I cut two sets of each number of cups and stacked them together.  In the bottom of each egg carton cup, I put a little paint…

Before painting with the egg carton stampers, we reviewed our numbers one through four and counted the number of cups in each egg stamper. Some of the children caught on to this concept and others just enjoyed the painting process…

Simple but fun…
