12 {Creative} Egg Carton Crafts

We love egg carton crafts because it’s great to make things from  recyclable  items.  It’s good to get a second use out of things – even food containers!  Plus, we know you don’t have to spend a lot at the craft store to make pretty things.

Here are some egg carton crafts we found in our kids activities link-up, It’s Playtime!  You can share your activities there, too, every Wednesday afternoon.
