Egg Carton Monsters


My poor little girl has been sick for the past couple of days with a respiratory virus. She is on the mend, but we had a rough weekend. Most of the last few days have been spent cuddling on the couch, but today my little girl was feeling more like herself & was ready to get her hands in some paint.

Egg Carton Monsters

What you will need:

Egg Carton sections


Googly Eyes

Pipe cleaners

Glue Gun (For adults only)

School glue can be used by children to add googly eyes & other embellishments.



Cut an egg carton & separate into individual sections. You will need three sections for each monster. Paint your pieces.

Glue two of your sections together in the back leaving an opening in the front for an open mouth. Glue these two to another section as shown.


Add different googly eyes, & arrange pipe cleaners for arms.

As we were making the monsters, the shape of the faces reminded me of Kermit the Frog. I had to make a Kermit for myself.

You will need 3 sections just like above. Paint all three green. Cut a circle out of the egg carton cover to form a tongue. Paint it red with a pink tongue in the center. Let them dry & glue the tongue to one section as shown.


Cut eyes out of the egg carton cover. Paint in white, let dry & paint in the black part of the eyes.


Glue the eyes to one of the sections (not the one with the tongue).


Paint & cut a zig zag pattern out of the cover. Let dry & glue around the section with the tongue as shown.
