DIY Egg Carton Birds

So often we categorize crafts and rightly so. If you are a blogger then you do it for the SEO factor. When people google kids crafts we want to make sure our ideas pop up and it helps organize our blogs.

There are some crafts that are just kids crafts but then sometimes even older teens or adults can enjoy them as well.


These birds are so fun for all ages. Make these on a family craft night this fall. This is a craft that uses materials that you probably already have and can recycle.

You need very little supplies.


Paint of all colors, feathers of all colors {Bought at a craft store or online}, glue, googly eyes or buttons and parts of an egg carton.

You can get 2 bodies out of a carton. Just cut the lid of the carton in half. For the eyes, use the part where the eggs go and just cut 2 by 2. Now, you have eyes and a nose.


Just paint, glue on feathers and any other embellishment you would like.

Easy, right?



The top 2 were made by older teens. Look how cute those buttons are for eyes.

Below are some made by kids ages 8 and 5.



Youngers kids love googly eyes.

Who knew that egg cartons that were headed for the trash would make the cutest birds?

I believe that crafting/creating is good for the soul. Do it as a family and come together to share your crafty ideas. Create a family of birds to put out with your fall décor. Just another idea to bring into the home and it is a crafty one.

Imagine that?

Always remember to Create, Share and Inspire!
