Egg Carton Critters

When you're looking for easy craft ideas for kids, you want a project that requires little time to prep, simple instructions, and affordable supplies. And yet, it is still creative and fun for kids to make! Here at Creative Child Magazine, we bring you new, easy art activities for toddlers, elementary school kids and big kids alike!

These fluffy critters are an easy art project to create. Nesting animals, like rabbits and chicks, are as sweet as can be and can be put together with your preschooler or kindergartener. All you’ll need is an old egg carton, a few simple craft supplies, and about 20 minutes.
