Egg Carton Jack-O-Lantern Craft for kids. Fall autumn & Halloween Crafts & activities.

My picky daughter has recently discovered that she loved eggs. She like them in every form, scrambled, fried & hard-boiled.  This is great news to me, as my husband & I love them too. We just finished an extra-large carton of eggs. Normally, I would store the egg carton away to use for craft projects at a later date, but since we are moving I can no longer hoard things away. What does that mean to us? That means last night we made a lot of egg carton crafts.

We decided that we were going to make pumpkins & jack-o-lanterns, so we cut up our carton & painted each piece in orange & then let them dry.

For our first craft, we cut a stem & leaf out of construction paper.

We glued them down to another piece of paper. We took 7 carton pieces & glued them around each other to form a circle.

Mommy went a little further & made her project into a jack-o-lantern. We used construction paper for the face.
