Egg Carton faces

Egg carton faces kids crafts by Mini Mad Things

This is such a fun, up-cycled craft project and all you need is egg cartons, scissors and a bit of glue. I find myself hunting in the shops for egg cartons with interesting shapes just to make these, all egg cartons are not made the same!

Before we get into the making, I wanted to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for visiting MINI MAD THINGS. All the crafts I share here on the blog are pretty much just made for the love of making things with my children. Even if I didn't have a craft blog, we would still be happily making together around our kitchen table. It is just the icing on the cake that I can share our ideas with YOU through our website and INSTAGRAM page. I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have a business that I'm truly passionate about. So next time you are looking for a creative, thoughtful and eco-friendly gift for the little people in your life, it would be totally awesome if you could keep our range of fun kids CRAFT KITS, ART BOOKS and ECO ART SUPPLIES in mind. You can see our full range of MINI MAD THINGS products HERE.



Cut your egg carton 'head' shapes from the lids of the egg cartons. Little kids will need help cutting through the egg cartons but bigger kids should be able to manage it themselves.
