A container of eggs can be perfectly recycled and transformed into a curious craft for children. With the carton of eggs that we usually throw away, this pleasant craft for children can be made.

On this occasion, we propose that the children make, alone or with the help of their mother or father, this beautiful and flirty turtle, and learn the importance of recycling and taking advantage of everything, cardboard boxes, plastic bottles, cans. , etc., to hang out and have fun.


  • Carton of 6 eggs
  • Green cardstock
  • Newsprint
  • Glue
  • Pair of scissors
  • Color tempera
  • Brushes
  • Plastic eyes
  • Indelible markers

1- Put feet and head to the turtle in papier-mâché
Cut out four legs and a tail for the turtle from the cardboard, and glue them to the ends of the egg container. Roll up some sheets of newspaper in the shape of a turtle neck and head and glue it to the opposite side of the tail. Mix a bit of vinyl glue with a little water and brush the head. Wait for it to dry.

2- Paint the face and shell of the turtle
Once the turtle is dry, paint the head the same shade of green as the legs. Let dry. Then he glued his eyes and painted his mouth with a black marker, a nose, and cheeks with tempera. Some hooves are also painted on the legs and some details on the tail. To finish, paint the box orange and decorate the rest to taste.

3- The turtle is done! And here we have a cute and cheerful turtle to play as well as to decorate the children's room. It can be used to store small objects such as paper clips, pencils, erasers, etc.
