My wonderful Twitter friends came to the rescue when I asked about egg carton crafts. They had so many brilliant ideas, but what I discovered was, that with a little bit of instruction, kids' imaginations are the best at taking an idea and running with it.
Ladybug (2 years old) and I invited her cousins over for egg carton crafts last week. And we had a blast!
Our supplies were: egg carton, chenille stems (pipe cleaners), googly eyes, glue, crayons, and scissors. We could have used paint, but I am anti-mess when it comes to my toddler (I'm working on that!), so
The nieces made all kinds of bugs and creepy crawly things. Ladybug enjoyed pulling the legs off all the bugs. I just drew eyes and mouth on them for Ladybug, and the older girls used the googly eyes and chenille stems for mouths.
