Eggs, eggs, eggs

This environment was set up in response to an interest in the vast collection of egg cup and the Easter period (last year)
 It was used in a variety of ways over a period of some weeks, as simple sorting/ collecting/ joining to playing egg shops or resteraunts.
 The chick egg collector was from poundland, Im not sure if they are doing them this year also.
Spiky eggs, sorted, little chicks...
A basket full of egg cups (never have enough it would seem, all purchased from charity shops)

Chapel Hill Snippits has a wonderful Eggs story book on her blog to down load, which has accompanying printable PCS symbols

The Pets have been found!!!

In a little box on the coffee table (of course!)

Tiny Road Mat Quiet Bag

 I actually don't have an image of this folded and holding the cars but I promise you it does and fits nicely into a handbag to take anywhere.
 Simply sewn to fit "Learning Resources" mini motors, but you could make this for any cars you have available. The landmarks on the map serve as a great parking parking space for corresponding motor (bus- school, fire engine- fire station etc.) which was not my intention but works well!
