Babies and Toddlers: Egg Shape Sorter Box

I'm watching my niece today...and we had out our Easter Eggs, so I decided to make a quick little activity for her!  You could easily decorate the box and make it look a little nicer, but simple is the word around here!! 

Supplies:
Shoebox or tissue box
Knife
Plastic eggs

1)  Cut a round hole large enough for the eggs to fit through.  Cut a few more shapes.  Make them small enough the eggs cannot fit through them.

2)  Show the older baby or toddler how to put the egg in the correct hole.  Let them give it a try!! 

I was surprised, but my four year old loves this!  She used the egg-coloring tongs to put eggs into the hole!  So, I guess it is an adaptable activity!!

What a simple idea! I was wondering where you were going with the squares and triangles with the eggs... lol - great deduction learning :)

I love that you reused a shoe box. I was wondering about egg shapes too.
