- EGG-citing Egg Math Grades Any
A fun lesson that teaches everything from sorting to place value. "I use the opportunity of spring to utilize colored plastic eggs in math for several days. Using egg cartons cut to make 'tens frames,' we estimate, count, tally, sort, classify by color and size (some eggs have smaller eggs inside), and calculate money (pennies, nickels, and dimes). We extend the activity by using grocery sale ads from newspapers to read how many cents items cost. We even become smart shoppers by determining which store has eggs on sale for the best price. We culminate the egg unit with an egg hunt. Each child has to tally total number of eggs found and they earn prizes from the treasure box based on accuracy."

- Milk Carton Creations Grades Any
A fun and easy activity to use up those milk cartons. "I save empty milk cartons to use for other projects. When Easter comes, I cut the top off the box, cover it with a strip of colored paper that is 2"x 11", attach a handle made from a pipe cleaner, and it becomes an Easter basket. On May Day, it can become a May basket. In the spring, I use them to plant seeds in so the children can take them home when the seeds have started to grow. Milk cartons are cheap to use and great to recycle."
