I love crafting with kids, especially when I get to upcycle something bound for the trash like an egg carton. My 10 year old had a blast making these little cuties and she loved the fact there was an hidden treasure inside.

Supplies: an egg carton (mine is from Smith Brothers Farms… we already enjoyed all the fresh eggs!), yellow acrylic paint, yellow washi tape, googly eyes, orange felt, feathers, craft glue and scissors. Small treats like jelly beans are also a sweet touch.
