Egg carton art project


This one was another of the no fuss art projects. Ananya was engaged for almost thirty minutes which I think is amazing for a toddler.

You will need

– Egg carton

– Tempera paints (one or more colors. maybe set of rainbow colors.)

– Paint brush

– I even gave her glitter glue.

This is a very open ended project. Maybe mix up some glue with tempera paint and let them paste decorative items (sequins, confetti, stickers, tissue paper etc). It becomes a  Egg carton collage then.

Once she was done with painting, I gave her glitter glue in squeeze bottles. I also gave her a spoon. After every squeeze, she would mix up all the glue. She enjoyed the process of squeezing and mixing so much!

Like any other process art project, there is not much of an end product. What matters is the process – having fun painting, squeezing, mixing.
