Slice & Sort Wooden Eggs
Item # 9301
This is a truly eggcelent addition to any play kitchen! Children can match the six different yolk colors--red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple--then use the wooden knife to slice the eggs apart and mix them up or play memory games. Great for imaginative play and fine motor skills, this wooden toy is also an excellent way to discuss concepts of color (primary, secondary) and fractions (half, whole).

Ask the child to count the eggs, then use the wooden knife to cut them in half. Ask him or her to count them again and explain that there are now twice as many pieces.
See how fast the child can cut apart all of the eggs--without letting any roll away! Count in seconds, and challenge him or her to try it again going even faster.
Play memory eggspert! Arrange the egg halves on a flat surface, color side down, in rows of four. Then ask the child to turn them over one at a time looking for a match until all the eggs are whole again.
Arrange halves of the eggs into the colors of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple) before asking the child to close his or her eyes while you remove one piece. Ask the child to identify which color has been removed.
Stick two primary color halves together (red and yellow, blue and yellow, red and blue), putting the remaining halves in the box. Ask the child to cut the eggs in half using the wooden knife, then reach into the box and pull out the secondary color he or she would get by combining them (orange, green, purple).
