Recycle and reuse by making a beautiful Easter Cross from egg cartons with your kids. Reflect on the true meaning of Easter!
It is time for Project: Recycle & Create! And this month the challenge is to create with egg cartons!
If you’ve missed the previous month’s challenges, you can see it here:
Now, this Easter Cross is really so easy to make and great fun too!
How to make an Easte cross from egg cartons:
Adult Step: Use a large egg carton and cut the pieces out for a cross, 4 cups down, 3 across.
Kids: Now paint the cross any color you’d like. We did Purple because purple reminds me of the Kingship of Christ.
Cut a heart out of recycled paper, and attach it to the middle of the cross. Use a Wooden heart too if you’d like. Finish off the cross by attaching a rope or string so it can be hung.
It is now hanging in my daughter’s bedroom above her bed, between the 2 hearts, quite fitting, I’d say;)
