  16. I didn't know what to do for unplug this week either because my little guy is 2 only doesn't really get words.

  19. omg this is brilliant. And since my son (4 yrs old) is doing Readingeggs.com now, and learning short words like this, well, these can be Reading Eggs! He'll love the tie-in.

    We are also doing Chinese... and this would totally work for putting together either radicals to form new characters, or two characters to form new words. Thanks for the idea... just in time for when bags of eggs like this are in dollar stores everywhere!

  30. This is an EGG-cellent idea...Love it! I'm going to recycle the eggs I've had for the past 2 years and donate them to my son's 1st grade teacher. They are a great way to have children learn their sight words...especially when they rhyme. Thanks for the idea.

  33. Did you use a label maker to make and attach the letters?

    1. I wrote on small return address labels. I would have written directly on the eggs but my son didn't want his eggs altered. After we did the activity, he peeled off all the labels. :)
