The Story of a Little Yellow Eggbox

Once there was a Little Yellow Eggbox.

She was put into a recycling box where she met lots of interesting Things. There were lots of other eggboxes, a couple of tin cans, some shampoo bottles, lots of lids and loo roll tubes.. They all had their own story to tell about how they came to be there and what they would become in the future.  Some of them would become musical instruments, others would become XMAS tree decorations, still others would become spooky Halloween creatures….it was very interesting for them to have another life, so they had long chats about their futures and what they would be.

And sometimes a Little Girl came to sit down with them and played with them. She built houses and cars,  in fact, lots of different things.

But one day the Little Girl took the Little Yellow Eggbox and put it into her toy box. The Little Yellow Eggbox looked around and felt very surprised, not seeing any toys there. There were clothes pegs,loo roll tubes, little boxes,  lollipop sticks….Perhaps the world had changed. Perhaps this is what children played with nowadays.

It was fun in this toybox but one day the Lady came and took her and lots of other egg boxes, and said to the Little Girl, that it was a very important day. The dolls w0uld have a new member of the family so they needed some new furniture…

So they built a sofa, lamp, bed, bookshelves,

a table and chairs,

lots of plates and books,

a clock and some picture frames…

…a whole houseful of furniture,

so everything was ready for the new arrival,

but that’s another story.
