Kids Card Holder

My friend Laura shared this idea on FB after she read it in some magazine or something, and it was such a great idea I tried it the next week.  And it worked perfectly!

Check it out... a card holder for kids since their little hands can't hold all those cards! Eli loves to play Uno so this works perfectly!


Directions: Cut off the bottom half of your egg carton.  Then cut a slit in each cup.  

Eli was able to slide the cards in there himself.  His cards stayed private from the rest of us and made it actually feel like a real game for once where he could play completely on his own!
He's since painted his carton, so we'll see if the paint flakes off on the cards or if we need to save another one and remake it.
