Recycling Paper Egg Cartons
It's easy to recycle paper egg cartons. In the spring, cut the egg container apart into separate cups and clip them all until they have four points. Have the children paint them, put a pipe cleaner through the bottom, attach a leaf and it becomes a tulip for spring or Mother's Day. Another fun use is to attach a pipe cleaner to the painted cups and make cute baskets to hang on an Easter or May Day tree. They're also handy to use for a place to lay paint brushes while the children are painting.
