Egg Carton Counting Activity

I used to use all sorts of counting activities to help my students learn their 1, 2, 3’s.

Egg Carton Counting is one of the easiest – and it’s very simple to tote around the house.

You will need:

  • Empty (clean) egg carton
  • Permanent marker
  • Beans (or similar small objects for counting)
  • Ziploc bag

How to make:

  • Using a permanent marker, write a number in each egg holder.  I chose to number my carton from 1-12.  You might decide to differentiate, depending on what counting skills your child is practicing (ie counting by twos, fives, etc).

  • Kids practice math skills by counting the number of beans that each egg holder calls for – then placing those beans in that space.

  • That’s it!  Super simple!
  • Use a Ziploc bag to store beans when not in use.  The bag fits inside nicely, allowing the egg carton to close completely for storage.
