Build Your Own: Egg box Animals
Ever wondered what to do with leftover egg cartons (other than recycle them of course!) Well it turns out they make the perfect base for a fun animal-themed craft. Don’t worry if you don’t have all the decorations on hand, let your child use their imagination and just see what you can find around the house.
This is a fun creative activity that helps your little one practice using scissors (great for fine motor skills), colours, and identifying animals. You could even make it a themed activity, like spring animals, sea creatures, or woodland creatures.
What you need:
- Cardboard egg box
- Poster paint and brush
- Coloured paper
- PVA glue or glue stick
- Googly eyes
- Pipe cleaners/feathers/any other decoration you might have in the house
