This is a guide about Cadbury egg carton gift. A clever way to gift Cadbury eggs is in a decorated egg crate.
We cut out cups from egg cartons and painted them each different colours. Then we added googly eyes, foam pieces for noses and pipe cleaners. We filled with heart candy. The kids really enjoyed this project.

This is a guide about making an egg carton ship. You and the kids can make a fun ship to hold little bits of this and that from a foam egg carton.
Use your egg cartons before you throw them out! When they are empty, write a different number in each space; either 1-12 or 0-11. Then place 2 beans, coins or other small items in them and close the lid. Shake and reopen. Wherever your items landed, make your kid add or multiply the numbers together. If they get it right, then they get a point, whoever gets the most points wins.
This is a great idea, and kudos to you for helping your kids learn their times tables. I am a teacher, grade 7 & 8 mostly, and far too few of them know their multiplication tables well enough. When they do know them, they find the concepts we teach at the middle years very easy. If they don't, it is almost a losing battle. And so many "modern" teachers and math textbooks think that memorization of facts is hopelessly old fashioned.
This is a great idea, and I may even use it in my classes just as a review. This would make a great game.
I love to see how creative people can get. There's proably a game out there that costs $50 that gets the same result. I'm going to use this with my granddaughters. Keep coming up with those ideas!
This is a guide about making an egg carton ice cream cone. Kids love to pretend to be a shop keeper. Use these little homemade ice cream cones toys to add some fun to their make believe.

I just got back last night from a weekend of fun and games with my 5 year old granddaughter, Megan. We all know how little kids love to give presents to grown ups. She gave me some bells that she had made from a recycled paper egg carton. You just cut out the little cups and paint.
Anyone have fun craft ideas using egg cartons?
