Snow Day Alert! Try this Egg Carton Christmas Craft

With the holidays just around the corner, entertaining kids can be a chore.

We’ve come up with a clever craft that will keep the kids busy and can be done with just a few materials, all of which can be found around the house!

Check out the instructions below for how to make these fun (and easy) egg carton Christmas crafts!

Egg Carton Candy Cane

Egg Carton Christmas Tree

What you need:

  • Egg cartons (we used one carton for the tree and one and a half for the candy cane)
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Paint or markers
  • Wire coat hanger
  • Wire cutters

Candy Cane:

Step 1: cut the top off the carton and cut the cups into separate sections.

Step 2: Colour half of the cups red; you will only need to colour the top of ONE of the cups, as the rest will be hidden once it has been assembled. Paint can also be used to colour the cups.

Step 3: Using the wire cutters, cut the long, straight part of the coat hanger off.

Step 4: Bend the wire at one end so that it is shaped like a candy cane. Create a very small loop on the curved end to keep the cups from falling off the top.

Step 5: Assemble the cups onto the wire, by carefully piecing the wire through the carton. Starting with the fully coloured cup, alternate between red and white cups.

Step 6: Once all the cups have been put on, wrap a piece of tape around the bottom of the wire to secure the cups in place.

 

Christmas Tree

Step 1: Cut the top off the carton and cut the cups individually.

Step 2: Colour the cups; you will only need to colour the top of ONE of the cups, as the rest will be hidden once it has been assembled. Paint can also be used to colour the cups instead of markers.

Step 3: Using the wire cutters, cut the long, straight part of the coat hanger off.

Step 4: Secure a piece of tape to the bottom of the wire. This will keep the cups from falling off the bottom.

Step 5: Assemble the cups onto the wire, by carefully piecing the wire through the carton, starting with the fully coloured cup.

Step 6: On the inside of the egg carton lid, draw a star.

Step 7: Cut out the star, and colour it in.

Step 8: Using a piece of tape, attach the back of the star to the wire.

Optional: If you’re feeling extra festive, add some sequins or glitter to really make your tree sparkle!
