Reusing Egg Coloring Cups

It’s Earth Day and I thought it would be nice to combine the practice of reusing with something you may have purchased in the past weeks – the colored cups that come with egg dying kits. Once you’re done coloring Easter eggs, the containers are perfect for using in My Obstacle Courses! They stack well for storing purposes and are bright and colorful. I especially like them because they keep things we are using at a station contained until we get there or they can be set out with labels as part of a sorting station. Here are some photos showing how I have used them over the past 4 years…

My Obstacle Course Station Activity: Sort the puffs into the same colored cup using a tweezers.

Colorful containers match colored puffs for station activity of sorting by color.

My Obstacle Course Station Activity: Blow the puffs off of the counter into the cup.

If I haven’t done a post on the station activity, I will do so at a later date. Andrew is off today so I’m going to keep this short and sweet because we are off to do our own Easter themed My Obstacle Course! Have a great weekend!! 🙂
