Creative Egg Carton Activities for Kids

What can I make out of egg cartons? You won't believe all the fun things you can make out of egg cartons with toddlers & preschoolers!

Inside this post I'm going to share how you can make so many fun things with egg cartons, including:
  • arts & craft projects
  • fine motor skill building activities
  • hunting & matching games
  • science ideas with egg cartons

Some of our favorite craft materials are ones that we might typically recycle! 

Repurposing these items and giving them new life before they are recycled allows us to reduce the amount of usable items that end up in landfills and it helps us save money on craft supplies.
