This is an adorable panda you can make out of an egg carton. It's holding a bamboo stick, which is made from the straw from a kid's drink box. This is a wonderful all-ages craft, and it's virtually free. :)

Total Time: 30 minutes plus dry time

Yield: 1 panda


  • 1 cardboard egg carton
  • scissors
  • black paint
  • paintbrush
  • hot glue gun or strong craft glue
  • small drinking straw
