There is so much more to hollow wood eggs than what first meets the eye. Although great for Easter egg hunts and pretend play, they can also be used as educational learning toys.


{Ways to use hollow wood eggs as learning toys}

  • use a set of them in different colours for colour sorting by adding small items of the same colour inside.
  • use them as shakers to listen to different sounds
  • use them as story starter when you put a slip of paper with a sentence written on it inside of them
  • use them as discovery tools to hold a manipulative in it such as the one pictured with a spin top and the one pictured with a crayon.
  • use them in scavenger hunts by putting a piece of paper with a picture of the item to look for inside of the eggs. Make it a 2 part scavenger hunt by hiding the eggs first.
  • use them for matching games where you have a set of them with tops and bottoms placed in a basket ready to be paired up
  • use them as reward holders by placing a small treat or toy inside

      One Tree Planted is a 501c3 nonprofit that plants
      trees around the world. Their mission is to reforest the planet, one tree at a time.
      Every $1 donated helps plant 1 tree. It's that simple. They also aim to raise awareness about the importance of trees, offer businesses a simple sustainability solution, and motivate younger generations to do something positive for the environment.  They believe that businesses can be advocates for sustainability.

      And so do we. As a business that relies on trees for its handcrafted goods, the least we can do is to ensure that we are using sustainable practices including making sure that the pine, aspen and maple we use are reforested for the next generations to enjoy. 

      And as One Tree Planted so nicely puts it, 
      By supporting tree-planting, businesses show that they are leaders in creating a healthier world in which humanity, nature, and wildlife can thrive. 

      So why did we choose to go with a USA based tree planting charity instead of Canadian based? The answer is simple. This charity is able to plant 1 tree for $1 US dollar here in Canada. Canadian charities start at $3.99 per tree. Sure, it means that we cannot use anything we donate to the USA charity for tax break purposes - but that is not the point. We want to help replant what we use so that future generations can enjoy the trees too. With this charity along with your help, we can do more with less.

      Most items are handcrafted for you when you order it. This time of year we do have some ready to stock items. Local pickup is available for last minute gifts.
