With spring break approaching, it’s time to get creative! That’s why we have rounded up all of our favourite past craft creations using moulded fibre egg cartons. Moulded fibre packaging is made from 100% post-consumer paper like newspaper and office paper, making these egg cartons recyclable, compostable, and biodegradable. They make a great base for an easy DIY craft. Create flowers, animals, creatures, and more simply by cutting out the paper egg cartons, painting them, and gluing them together. Kids love getting creative with these simple ideas. They also make creative art projects to display or give gifts around different seasons, holidays, or birthdays. 

Here’s a round-up of all of our recycled paper egg carton crafts:

While you’re crafting with your little one, discuss the importance of using moulded-fibre packaging over plastic or polystyrene foam packaging, especially when purchasing eggs.
