Egg carton chameleon

Egg carton charmeleon kids crafts

The original idea for this project came from the fantastic JUMBLE TREE kids craft blog. I urge you to go and check it out, Tracey is truly an master of egg carton craft and she is pretty handy with a toilet roll too!

MATERIALS: Lots of egg cartons, paint, glue and scissors.

DIRECTIONS: Begin by cutting out the tall central spikes from your egg cartons. The more you have, the longer your animal will be!

Add a crest to your head section and a curly tail to the end.

Cut the tops off your cone shapes, this will allow you to curve the body shape when you glue the cones together.

Use 2 of the cut off points for your chameleon eyes and cut 4 leg from another part of the egg carton. Now paint all your body parts, we used rainbow colours for our chameleon.

Once your paint had dried you can glue your chameleon body parts together, we used PVA glue which takes a while to dry but hot glue would also work.
