Milk Carton Creations


Found in: crafts & cooking; reduce, reuse. recycle

I save empty milk cartons to use for other projects. When Easter comes, I cut the top off a box, cover it with a strip of colored paper that is 2 x 11, attach a handle made from a pipe cleaner and it becomes an Easter basket. On May Day, a cartoon can become a May basket. In the spring, I have students plant seeds in them so they can take them home when the seeds have started to grow. Milk cartons are cheap to use and great to recycle.
