Egg Carton Playing Card Holder

Did everyone get a ton of games over the Holidays?

Santa was very kind to us and we got both the electronic kind (so the kids can play without us) AND the manual kind (so the kids can play with us).

Problem is, card games require you to hold several cards in your hand at a time and that’s tough when your hands are smaller than one card.

We had a super-simple solution;  repurpose an egg carton to a playing card holder!

Took less than 5 minutes to whip up 5 of them.  Cut the lid off of an empty egg carton.  Cut between the two rows, then add a small slit into the bottom of each egg cup.
The cards easily tuck into the slits and the kids are able to see and play easily.  Perfect playing card holder for little hands!
And free!  Did I mention totally free?

 Hubby and I are challenged like to challenge ourselves and play upside down.
Adds to the adrenaline-pumping action.  (totally kidding, I forgot to change my cards around before snapping a photo).

The earmuffs were a gift from a friend – I actually DO have heat in my house.

Or maybe I’m confused with the layer of insulation I gained over the past few days?



Have a great one!
