Don’t toss out those old cardboard boxes. These corrugated cardboard Easter eggs are an easy and fun way to recycle while making something adorable.Painted corrugated cardboard Easter eggs. Spring arts & crafts for kids and preschoolers

If you are a chronic Amazon orderer like me, you probably have an abundance of cardboard boxes. There are so many things that you can do with an old box. You can make fun play areas with them, make crafts or use the cardboard for printmaking or a canvas.

We loved using corrugated cardboard and thought that the ridges would be perfect for Easter eggs.

Draw an egg shape on a piece of cardboard and then cut it out.

Peel back layers of cardboard to reveal the ridges. Peel off as much or as little as you like.

You may use a pair of scissors for more precise lines.

Paint the egg in pastel acrylic paints and set it aside to dry.

My daughter wanted polka dots on her eggs, so we glued on buttons too.

My daughter was pretty excited about how her eggs came out. She poked holes in her eggs and poked strings through the holes to make ornaments. These were super easy and are a great piece of process art for Easter.
