I am a content contributor to the Curiosity Box blog – and it’s about time I posted another fun craft that you can do with your kids…
Today, we’re playing with egg cartons.
I should have left it at that – just give a kid an egg carton and watch what they come up with! Their imaginations are so amazing to watch, and you’ll see ideas evolve that you never would have thought of yourself.
We started out making some Easter/Spring/Mother’s Day art.
You will need:
- egg carton
- kid-safe paints
Depending on the age of your child, you could let them cut the egg cups out themselves. Chloe is old enough, but the carton material is a little tough to cut through with children’s scissors, so I helped out a bit:
We left them in varying heights because as I was cutting, Chloe came up with different ideas to use them for.
We started by painting the lid green as a nice bright spring background.
These paints are from Ikea and are actually neon coloured – so they are really cheerful and quickly hide the dull gray of the egg carton itself.
