Egg Carton Crafts
Egg cartons can be the basis for some fun crafts. To make colorful tulips, cut or pull each individual egg container from an egg carton; then cut that piece in the shape of a tulip, with jagged edges. Kids can decorate the tulips in their favorite colors, and let them dry. Gather green pipe cleaners to use as stems — kids can just glue them on to the tulip (with parental supervision, hot glue works best, but regular will also be fine). Another easy project: Separate four or more cups from your egg carton, keeping them connected. Ask kids to make two small holes in the front of one cup for antennae, and slip in a pipe cleaner. Kids can then add eyes and a mouth, and paint away to complete their caterpillars!
