We were playing the card game UNO with friends on Thanksgiving when our son was having trouble holding his cards in his hand. He didn’t want them facing up (or down) on the table – so what to do? That’s when I remembered the egg carton I had saved away months ago in anticipation of this very reason.
We found the cardboard egg carton, used a knife to cut a line down the middle of the bottom of it, and it worked perfectly for holding his cards!
Tip: Do not cut all the way through the end (like we accidentally did on one row). It won’t have as tight of a hold on the cards. You will end up taping the end and that won’t work that great either. You will end up throwing out the egg carton and making another one.
GO SLOW and do NOT CUT THROUGH THE END!
And watch your little one enjoy their card-playing independence! 🙂
