Easter Cross from Egg cartons


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 sooo easy to make!

What we did:
We’ve used a large egg carton and cut the pieces out to for a cross, 4 cups down, 3 across.


Then painted it purple(because purple reminds me of the Kingship of Christ):


I cut a heart out of recycled paper, which we added to the middle of the cross, together with the wooden heart. The rope finished off our awesome craft!


It is now hanging in my daughter’s bedroom above her bed, between the 2 hearts, quite fitting, I’d say;)

Now for you to join in: visit the participating blogs to see what they created with their egg cartons.

    This is adorable and something I could do with my 4 year old easily. I’d love for you to link up to the 40 Days of Seeking Him meme this week to share as I’m sure there are others looking for easy activities with their preschoolers. Here’s the link for this week if you are interested:
