Macaroni Craft: Egg Carton Turtles

By Maggie Mackay, Fellow Macaroni Kid Publisher April 4, 2012

This craft has the two elements I like most. First, it's easy! Second, it uses googly eyes! If you are dying eggs for Easter, have some fun with all those egg cartons!

What You Need:

  • Egg cartons cut into a square (4 egg holes in each square)
  • Paint
  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes

What You Do:

Paint the egg carton squares and allow to dry. Cut a head, four legs, and a little tail out of construction paper. Make a little fold at the end of each piece and glue to the underside of the egg carton so they stick out. Glue two googly eyes on to the turtle's head.
