Wondering what to do with plastic eggs that is fun and educational?

I love those glittery little eggs. The child has to hide the coloured egg into the corresponding plastic egg.
It’s so easy to reuse egg cartons. So with this one, I have only use my sharpies and coloured the bottom of the egg carton. Another colour matching.
Match the number of dots to the right numeral.
I write some word families on the eggs, with the end blend on one half and the first letter on the other half.
I have written “sat, mat, rat, cat, bat, fat, hat”, “pen, hen, zen, ten, men”, “big, wig, jig, pig”, “bug, mug, rug, tug”, “bog, mog, log, jog, dog”
I am sure you have many more ideas too!
I made those activities with what I had already as I didn’t want to buy any more plastic eggs. I have been using the same batch of plastic eggs for nearly 8 years!
The fake grass is from Sainsbury. I was thrilled to have found this as I am planning to use it with the farm and the animals toys we have.
