So much fun with egg cartons and icy pole sticks

I saw this great idea on another homeschool Mum's blog, Inspiration Surrounds Creativity Abounds. Elise put paper hearts on the top of her icy pole sticks but I had these great stickers of animals so I thought I would use them.
It is an activity for Lola to use her 'fine motor skills', we can also talk about different animals.

I just used some icy pole sticks, laminated the stickers and glued them on. Then I used an old egg carton and cut slits in the egg cup holders for Roshana to insert & remove her icy pole animal sticks.

The finished product

Now for the test... will she love it?

Lola plays with her egg carton & animal icy pole sticks everyday...who knew such a homemade toy would be such a hit. Lots of fun while she learns.
