Eggcellent craft ideas for Easter holidays

Often Easter means school holidays for your kids. If you want to get creative and do some home crafting with your kids, here are some ideas to use those empty egg cartons and turn them into a bunny, rooster or caterpillar.

You’ll need:

  • Cardboard egg cartons
  • A pen, marker or paint
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Craft supplies (cotton wool, pipe cleaners, etc)
  • Your imagination 

For the Bunny:

  • Step 1 Find the egg carton you’d like to use. Cut out the cups only, you can make as many bunnies as you have cups
  • Step 2 Turn it upside down and draw the bunny face using the pens, markers or paint
  • Step 3 Cut out long ears from the top of the egg carton, draw the ears (or stick cotton wool on like I did!) and glue them at the back on the cup
  • Step 4 Cut out feet from the top of the egg carton and glue them to the front of the cup
  • Step 5 Give your bunny a fluffy tail using cotton wool
