Tissue boxes can easily be recycled for kids crafts and activities. We've found ways to use them for stacking activities and even a small world puppet theater. These options make it easy to reuse this everyday throwaway.
The Easter season is no exception. The cardboard found in tissue boxes can be used for this creative egg-making project.
This simple art activity is easy enough for toddlers, and fun for older kids too.
Cardboard Easter egg craft
Facial tissue is a common item in may households and classrooms, especially during cold and flu season. When you open a box of tissue the perforated top flap you remove resembles an egg shape. This is the inspiration for this simple Easter craft.
Easter crafts don't have to be complicated. Inspire color with markers and crayons, introduce a bit of texture with stickers and Easter grass, then look forward to a lot of creativity with kids imaginations.
