  1. Hi there, These are so wonderful! I love the variety of ideas. Just wanted to share a couple of my inexpensive DIY learning ideas from my blog. I featured two learning activities with plastic eggs. Like us on Facebook for my latest posts too. :) Thank you! -Deborah

  2. I am a teacher. We have been working with counting change in the classroom. I plan on using some of my eggs to put change in and have students determine the amount in the egg. Thinking it can be called eggstra change.

  3. I used plastic “scrambled” eggs in the classroom. I put pieces of paper with students scrambled spelling words in each egg. In the past students went on an egg hunt to find the eggs and then came back to the classroom to unscramble them. This year the eggs were in egg cartons for each of my spelling groups with a Starburst inside that they got to eat once they unscrambled their word.
