Egg Carton Creatures
Not everyone has the time or funding to plan out really extensive lesson plans. These egg carton creatures are a great way to save money and time, for volunteers or teachers that need a quick lesson. They can be used for celebrating holidays, demonstrating the importance of recycling, or for lessons about different insects.
1 egg carton (not plastic)
assorted colors of paint
feathers, googly eyes, pipe cleaners, ribbon (optional)
We made a spider, a turkey, a bat, and a lady bug out of a 1/2 dozen carton.
Simple, affordable, educational, and fun. Those are the kinds of crafts we love!
