I mentioned last week that we have an excess of egg cartons and gave you the heads up to be expecting a lot of egg carton crafts. Well, I hope you took me seriously – and if not, heads up! I started looking for some inspiration – and boy did I find some!! Here are 22 Egg Carton Crafts for kids!
Egg Carton Crafts for Kids
helicopter – this one is our creation, and what started the whole egg carton craft kick! We absolutely love it – and it really flies!
Egg Carton Turtle Craft – Sorting Sprinkles
Egg Carton People – MAKE – while little ones would need some help creating these, they would make wonderful props for storytelling and play!
Egg Carton Noses – The Craft Train – these are cute little kitten noses, but you could easily use an egg carton for any animal. This makes for a very frugal Halloween outfit – or in our house, an any day outfit.
Counting Spider Legs – this is another of ours, and adds in some one-to-one correspondence and fine motor skills too.
Egg Carton Fish – Crafty Crafted – what a wonderful extension this would make to the book “Rainbow Fish”!
Little Train – The Craft Train – This would make such a cute centerpiece at a birthday party! You could fill each little cup with treats.
Frog – Stilul meu de viata – Ummm … cute. Enough said?
The Letter Monster – this craft of ours is also a very fun (and very educational) game!
Egg Carton Goggles – Education.com – I know my little ones would love making AND wearing these. I would have to plan to create them on a week where we have nothing fancy planned, as I am sure these goggles will not be coming off my boys.
Egg Carton Critters – Spoonful – Let the little ones get creative!
Egg Carton Jelly Fish – All Free Kids Crafts – I love how this one really helps little one develop fine motor skills.
Egg Carton Dump Trucks – Rub Some Dirt On It Blog – My 4 year old would really enjoy making one of these! I love how it really dumps.
Fairy Crowns – Mom to 2 Posh Lil Divas – wouldn’t this make a great craft for a birthday party?!
Egg Carton Bee – Max n’ Mum Kids Activities
An Egg Carton Snake Puppet – Kidspot – I love this clever idea! And you could add in some patterning as well.
Egg Carton Christmas Tree – Mermaid Creations – Well, it may be May, but I have our first Christmas craft lined up!
Egg Carton Snowmen – Katherine Marie – And make that two Christmas crafts lined up. Check out this page for TONS of snowmen crafts!!
Egg Carton Toadstools – Krokotak – These would be so fun to make with a Girl Guide of Scout group.
Egg Carton Lions – One Crayola Short – In like a lion out like a lamb! These are adorable – and would be a wonderful extension to so many things!
5 Little Speckled Frogs – Rainy Day Mum – Rather ironic – this just so happens to be one of our current most favourite songs, and one of our current most favourite blogs!
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Sugar Ants – Are these guys making a comeback? They were big when I was little – are they big again? How cool would that be! Either way, love these egg carton versions.
There you have it! Lots and lots of awesome egg carton craft ideas. From birthday parties to holidays to just plain fun, there is something for every occasion. Looks like we will be spending our rainy days this spring with some egg carton crafting!
