If you’re looking for a fun activity to enjoy with the kids, make some carton critters! They’re easy to make and can be simple or detailed – it’s up to you! Plus, they’re a great opportunity to get some creativity flowing while making your favourite animals. Here’s what you do to make them:
1) Cut up the egg carton into individual cups and glue them together to form the bodies of your critters. From the top half of the carton, cut out any additional pieces (ears, wings, beaks, manes).
2) Paint your critter pieces into the colours you would like them to be, then assemble using glue.
3) Add any finishing touches. Paint on whiskers, eyes, noses – anything that will give your critter some character! Use them as toys or set your art up on display.
