I love it when toys can do double duty, but I have to confess, to being somewhat surprised at how entertaining the children have been finding our egg carton caterspeller game. We've managed to add another 18 letters to it, so they've been able to spell more words, which is fun.
But, the children have also enjoyed playing with them in other ways, too. Like, using them to accessorize our balloon powered cars.
Or, for building pyramids. In fact, E (age 6) kept herself very entertained for more than a half an hour, moving on toward an hour, working on this one.
It's not as easy as it looks, either. It takes a very steady hand, and a good deal of patience, and perseverance.
So, she was pretty proud of her success.
And, I mean - egg cartons! Who would have thought?
It's great to be a homeschooler.
