The perfect addition to our Spring time Learning Table, these Counting Eggs add a pop of color as well as a little something to find, count, sort, and explore imaginative thinking with. Where did they come from? Whose eggs are they? What’s inside? When will they hatch? How can we take care of them? A great little conversation prop and inspiration for pretend play.
Each tiny egg measures a little less than 1” tall by a little more than ½” wide. The set contains 18 eggs; 3 of each color: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple. Each has been painted with a watercolor wash and lightly sealed with beeswax.
The wooden nest is approximately 2.5” wide, painted brown and coated with beeswax in the same way.
Everything comes in a convenient little pouch to make clean-ups a cinch.
The Set you Get:
18 eggs (3 of each color)
All of my creations were made with your little one in mind. Each piece was designed to nurture child development through open-ended play. These pieces can be used to broaden your little one's understanding and knowledge of our world and were created as early educational toys. I am inspired by the teachings of Montessori; the natural beauty of Waldorf; and incorporate a myriad of other learning-through-play philosophies when I design. It makes me smile to see my made-with-love pieces being toted for use as preschool toys and in natural play settings. Thank you for helping me support little minds, bodies, and imaginations through engaging, hands-on play and discovery.
Sensory Based Learning
Mama May i believes little ones make sense of their world through sensing our world. That's why you will find all of our designs offer a variety of tactile learning-through-play opportunities. We use a myriad of different textures and surfaces intertwined to make the most of every little play-and-learn time you share.
Kid Tested, Mama Approved
My own little ones have the wonderfully engaging job of "product testers". They are my inspiration for new products as well as my initial testing market. I don't add things to the product line that aren't played with and loved first at home.
Making Mama Earth Smile
Mama May i strives to reduce the impact of our products on the environment and your little one. We avoid the use of harsh chemicals and varnishes and instead, use plant based pigments, and organic beeswax to finish our wooden playthings. We use mostly untreated Poplar, Maple, and Oak that is locally sourced. We know how important your little one's safety is and we won't sell anything we wouldn't let our own little ones enjoy.
