Recycled Craft ~ Simple Egg Carton Cross
This is a simple Easter craft that is so easy to create. When I saw this step by step video, I knew my day care kiddos would love making one. As you may know, I love using things from around the house so this craft is perfect. I love how this simple Egg Carton Cross turned out.
Egg Carton Cross Materials:
- 1 Egg Carton for each kid
- Paint ~ We used washable tempera paint
I let the kids choose what the colors of paint they wanted. However, I told them that they could only choose 3 colors between them. It was fun listening to the toddlers decided what colors were the most important. Kid rationalization is hilarious!
Limiting the colors was just to see how the kids would solve the problem, not because I really cared how many colors they chose. It is great to give small situations like this to kids and sit back and let them take the lead. Sometimes as parents we are too eager to “help” our kids and forget to give them a chance to problem solve on their own.
I love the kids color choices. I probably would have set out similar colors if I would have chosen for them.
The kids added a few jewels to their cross as well.
I love how they turned out!
