Egg carton fish

The next time you think of throwing out your egg cartons, think again for they can be used to make beautiful fish!

Egg carton

Cut the egg carton into individual cups.
Glue them together to get the shape of a fish.

Paint the fish

The kids deep in concentration

Cut craft foams as the fins. Use pipe cleaner as the mouth

The kid’s finished product – The Egg Carton Fish. Simply beautiful!
