"Egg Cartons" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Desk organizer. Remove the top and place the carton inside a deck drawer to hold paper clips, rubber bands, and other small items.
 

2. Coin toss. Write a different number in each section and let your children compete for a high score by tossing pennies.
 

3. Jewelry box. Store rings, earrings, chains, and cuff links in the individual cups.
 

4. Fire starter. Place several cardboard egg cartons under the kindling wood in the fireplace.
 

5. Toy “centipede.” Cut the compartments out and string them together; make legs and antennae from pipe cleaners.

 

 

 

6. Christmas storage. Store small Christmas tree bulbs and fragile ornaments in empty egg cartons.
 

7. Seed starter. Punch a hole in the bottom of each cup, fill with potting soil, water, then drain overnight. Sow one or two seeds per cup and cover with plastic wrap; uncover when the seeds begin to sprout.
 

8. Palette. Children can mix paints neatly in an empty plastic egg carton.
 

9. Game storage. Keep track of the small items in your children’s games: use one carton per game, label if with the name of the game, and keep it closed with a sturdy rubber band.
 

10. Ice cube tray. When you need extra ice for parties, fill plastic egg cartons with water.
