#03 Recycled egg carton hand-held mask
In the spirit of Purim we have crafted some imaginary birds hand-held masks using recycled egg carton. A great activity appropriate for any age group.
This post is part of an ‘Eco kids craft’ series I feature on my other blog Growing Up Creative. ‘Eco kids craft’ is a series of craft tutorials using recycled materials. My goal with this series is to guide parents and educators through the phases of some easy craft activities that encourage recycling, creativity and making with what you have. I have decided to combine this series in both blogs. I hope you will find it useful.
You will need:
Egg cartons (free range eggs carton is preferred…just kidding)
Washable tempera paint and brushes
Embellishments: feathers, fabric scraps, paper scraps, glitter etc.
Popsicle stick (craft sticks)
Please note, since I have more egg carton than I can handle and give to preschool, I have I been using them as disposable paint palette, it works great.
- Cut a pair of egg carton cups with the “beak” for each mask
- Make holes at the bottom of the egg cups
- set aside to dry
- Tape or glue craft stick to the side of the mask
Enjoy and have a happy Purim
