The "egg baby project" is a common classroom activity used in psychology when studying attachment. The purpose of the egg baby project is to provide students with a hands-on experience to apply to Shaffer and Emersons Stages of Attachment, it also serves as an exercise to explore other attachment theories in psychology, emphasising the importance of the caregiver-child bond.

Attachment theory focuses on the emotional bonds that form between individuals, especially between infants and their primary caregivers. The egg baby project can provide students with a practical and experiential way to explore concepts related to attachment and caregiving.
