Your preschooler or toddler will enjoy hiding and finding the eggs then matching the colors and shapes, while your babies will enjoy taking them apart and hammering them to make them squeak.

These are also perfect for pretend kitchen play and they come with a wooden tray. These eggs will also fit in a real egg carton too, which is how we store the eggs in our play kitchen.

As a natural saver, I used to cringe when I’d watch my daughter pile sticker after sticker on the exact same spot of a page in her coloring book. But with packs like these, not only are there 400 stickers, they are reusable too!
More fun for the kids, and less cringing for money-saving moms.
