With Easter here and egg dyeing, what are you to do with all those left over egg cartons? You can use the carton to store your hard boiled eggs in the refrigerator for up to one week, but for something more fun...make a bunny!
This is a great way to re-use those egg cartons and have fun with your kids. This comes in handy when the kids are off school for Spring Break and you are looking for something to keep them busy and not hear those dreaded words "Mom, I'm bored."
This craft is super easy and very inexpensive. You probably already have everything you need to create this adorable egg carton bunny, make it your own and have fun!
What you need:
Recycled Egg Carton
Markers or Paint (pink/white/black/gray)
Googly eyes (optional)
Cotton balls (optional for the tail)
Start by cutting out one egg carton cup. You will need to trim around the edges so it sits flat.
Then, cut a square from the carton to make the ears.
Cut out two bunny ears and put some white paint in the middle or use a pink marker.
Draw on the bunny’s face with a black marker and paint the nose with pink paint or marker.
Once the ears are dry, glue them to the back of the egg carton then paint on some white whiskers!
My son came up with the idea to make a carrot for the bunny, we cut it out from the egg carton and used markers to make our carrot.
You can also make a carrot patch, how fun is this!What you need:
Recycled Egg Carton
Pipe Cleaners (Orange & Green)Directions:
Start by cutting the lid off your recycled egg carton
Then cut the egg carton in half, or to your desired size.
Paint the egg carton green, and let dry.
Then, poke a hole at the top of each cup (I used a thumbtack) so you can put in your pipe cleaner carrot.
Cut your pipe cleaner's to create a carrot.
At the top of the orange pipe cleaner make a loop to slide the green pipe cleaner through and also so the pipe cleaner will sit at the top of the egg carton cup.
Once the green pipe cleaner is through your orange loop twist the green and make look like carrot top.
These are great to use for kitchen and garden play. You could also use the carrots for practicing counting and math.
