My ‘Kids Craft Stars‘ friends and I are back with another fun craft challenge. This month we’ve been crafting with egg cartons, which are such a great versatile material to make with. With Earth day this month, using old egg cartons to craft with is a fun way to recycle too!
For our egg carton craft, the boys and I decided to make some egg carton ice cream cones, along with a tray so they could play at selling ice cream. These are really easy to make and fun to play with once you’re done.
To make the set of egg carton ice cream cones you will need:
- 6 Central cones from a large egg box
- 1 small egg box for the tray
- Cotton wool balls and large pom poms in a variety of ice cream colours
- Small pom poms (optional)
- Glue gun
- Plain Vanilla
- Vanilla with cherries
- Vanilla with pink sprinkles
- Lemon sorbet
Your kids can have fun coming up with all kinda of crazy flavours if they like, using whichever coloured pom poms you have on hand, or you could try dyeing the cotton wool balls if you don’t have coloured pom poms around.
To make the tray, a 6 egg carton is a good size. The kids personalised their tray by painting it and making a couple of signs “Ice cream for sale” and “No more ice cream – sold out” to display on the inside.
