This game is a mixture of Mancala
, played on a egg carton 'board' with shell and nut playing pieces. A preschooler can play this version but you could invent some extra rules if you want make it harder. This version is designed for 2 players.
: 10 minutes to make

We chose shells and nuts for counters
Starting Position dots painted in each egg carton
Lid cut and painted to make Home zones
Board set up
Shell counters in the four blue Start Positions
The game is now ready to play!
