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.

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.

Ant on table.This oversized ant is sure to cause a stir at your next outdoor picnic. Make them to use as table decorations.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Locate 2 Styrofoam egg shapes and 1 Styrofoam ball shape. They sell these in different sizes in stores, so just try to get the same size around egg as the ball so they match up good.
  2. Paint the three Styrofoam pieces black and allow to dry.
  3. Using toothpicks or a wooden kabob skewer, attach the ant body by placing in order an egg shape, the ball in the middle, and an egg shape on the other end. Stick the toothpick or skewer through the Styrofoam shapes. If the skewer is too long, just cut to size.
  4. Cut 3 black pipe cleaners in half. Fold each in half and bend to resemble ant legs. Stick the loose ends into the Styrofoam. I put all three legs on each side in the middle ball, and angled them accordingly.
  5. Cut another black pipe cleaner in half and stick the two ends into the head of the ant to form antennas.
  6. Glue on googly eyes.
  7. Enjoy your faux ants all spring and summer!

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.

She also offered to let me borrow her extra tooth brush so I wouldn't have to walk all the way downstairs where my tooth brush was kept.
