The idea is super easy. Here's what you'll need:
- An egg carton
- Construction paper
- Foam sheets
- Paint and paint brushes (we used gouache)
- Wiggle eyes
- Glue stick, white glue or a glue gun (adult supervision required)
- Markers, crayons, colored pencils (your choice)
Cut out one cup from the egg carton.
For the turtle: Paint the egg cup green, the tab for the face yellow, and let dry. While you're waiting for the paint to dry, cut out the shapes for the tail and legs. Once your paint has dried, you can use a black marker to draw scales on the turtles shell and a face on the yellow tab. Glue the body parts onto the egg carton cup and you're done!
For the mouse: All you need for the mouse is a pink tail and some ears cut from construction paper. Draw on the eyes, nose and mouth and there you have it...an egg carton mouse.
For the ladybug: Use our picture for reference. Start by painting the egg cup red. When that's dry, paint black spots on the "back" of the lady bug. A black face wiggle eyes and some cut out antenae glued to the head and you're set!
For the rabbit: Our rabbit is super simple. Take 2 egg cups. On one draw a rabbit face (check out our picture), and from the other cut two big rabbit ears. Glue on the body of the rabbit and you've got yourself a recycled craft! Good job!
That's it....and keep up the recycling....it's important!
Now you can come up with your own ideas for egg carton crafts! How about a caterpillar or an elephant? You decide....but let us know! We'd love to see what you made.
