Egg Shell Sensory Activity

I've been saving egg shells (thoroughly washed and dried) for a few weeks now just for this activity for L. I figured it would be the fun of cracking eggs without the mess! Wow, I knew L would like this, but never imagined HOW MUCH! I'll definately be saving another batch of egg shells!

His face after he cracked the first one was priceless! He looked up at me like "oops, was I supposed to do that?" and after I gave him a big smile and said "yay, you cracked it!"
 he was sooo excited to crack some more!

After letting him play for a while and cracking most of them with his hands, I gave him something to mash them with.

This was an A+ activity on the toddler fun factor!
Next time I think i'll let him stomp on them with his shoes on for some goooood crunchin!!
