Egg Carton Leis

We’ve been working too hard this past week. Sometimes it’s time to PARTY!

Here’s a craft that’s a party all by itself.

We cut up a few empty egg cartons. I used a skewer to punch a hole in the middle of each “egg cup.” I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking.

We painted the cups and let them dry. (You might need to re-hole some of the cups after painting.) Then we strung them on a shoestring.

If you wanted to make this a Halloween craft, you could paint the cartons orange and black:

    Great fun. When I was nannying last week we read, many times, a short bilingual picture book about a leis. This would have been a great activity to do afterwards.

      Oh, that sounds fun. What book is it?
