Cute and Arts and Craft ideas
For this, all you need is some basic stationery, a little folding magic, and some coloring pens too. Fold a piece of paper in half twice, cut out an oval shaped egg and begin to color using a variety of shades. Don’t forget to place your little chick’s head above the egg cutout for the final touch.

Use egg cartons to design flower bunches
Cut equal numbers of egg holders and pointed cones from the carton. Paint the egg holders yellow and the cones orange. Glue all the cones into each of their holders to create the perfect flower head. Allow time to dry, to then glue straws towards the bottom of the carton to create a cute ‘stem’.

DIY Felted Easter Baskets
Cover out the plastic bottle bottom by using felt paper. Now create the handles using colorful felt. Decorate accordingly to preferences with pipe cleaners, googly eyes, and craft glue.
