by: Erin Dower

Save your cardboard egg cartons and use them to create this adorable turtle craft. It's the perfect recycled craft project for Earth Day!


  • Cardboard Egg Carton
  • Green Paint
  • Poms Poms
  • Curling Ribbon
  • Googly Eyes
  • Construction Paper
  • Paint Brush
  • Scissors

Cut one of the cups off of your egg carton, and paint it green. While you wait for the paint to dry, wrap a piece of curling ribbon around a pom pom and secure with glue or tape (optional). Glue the googly eyes on the curling ribbon. Glue the pom pom to the egg cup to make the body and head of your turtle. Finally, cut two pieces of construction paper to create the legs, and glue them to the body of your turtle.
