We absolutely love eggs in our house and have so much waste with packaging that we decided to draw up a list of the best egg carton crafts for kids!
You will be pleasantly surprised at how much you can actually make with an empty egg carton!
We have made animals, treat holders and even gifts from them.
All you need is some creativity (or my list below) to whip up something great!
I also asked some of my crafting friends for their best ideas and they were kind enough to share!
I always like to ask which one is your favorite? I find it hard to pick just one so I will let you be the judge this time 🙂
One of my favorite easy spider crafts for preschool kids! You can make this at any time of the year or even for Halloween!
Why not attach a string and dangle him from a light to give everyone a scare!
He requires some pipe cleaners, paint and googly eyes.
Still on my Halloween theme I bring you this scary ghost! I love ghost crafts for kids and like my others this is simple to put together!
We always try and make some ghosts for our annual Halloween party and this one goes down well.
You can even add some bright colors and make a friendly rainbow ghost.
What a cute little fall craft! Kids will have a blast making their own apple container for treats! Add some candy or a few raisins and give one out to each classmate 😉
They can eat these during their morning break!
