Teaching our kids to recycle is so important. It’s also a delight to see them think of creative ways to use what you have for crafts! Save your egg cartons for projects like this one. My daughter played for hours with her little creatures 🙂
Age: 4 and up
- bottom of the egg carton
- pipe cleaners
- markers and/or paint
- construction paper
- any thing else you can think of!
Talk about the importance of recycling with your kids. Show them how you separate the trash if they don’t already know how your family does this. Cut out the egg carton cups for the children. Give them some ideas of what they can create using pieces of pipe cleaners, cut paper, and markers or paint. Some examples: lady bug, spider, caterpillar (several cups glued or hooked together), turtle etc. Let them choose what to make and explore more options!
