Hooray for spring! It’s the time of year that birds start building nests, people start decorating eggs…. It’s an “egg”cellent time for some egg carton crafts!
This month Project: Recycle & Create chose egg cartons as their craft material. I have to say I just fell in love with this idea!
I decided to create an open-ended craft project for the kids, using egg cartons as the base of our craft.
We had several egg cartons on hand, which I cut into different sections ahead of time. I also got out pipe cleaners, craft sticks, googly eyes, markers, beads, feathers, clear tape and plenty of hot glue to hold things together.
Then I let them get creative!
I told them they could use whatever items they like to create their own masterpiece. I loved seeing their minds at work as they chose items, carefully cut, figured out how they wanted it, and asked for help with the hot glue gun.
The kindergartner decided she was making a dog.
Want to know what else we’ve done with egg cartons in the past?
What types of crafts/activities have you done with those egg cartons?
I’d love to hear about them! Leave a comment, or if you have a post, go ahead and add it to the linky!
