Egg Carton Cars Craft

Grab your supplies.

Paint your egg cartons different colours such as red, blue and black. Set them aside to dry. Once dry use craft glue or a glue gun to attached small squares for the windows and front and rear windshields. Cut these out of white foam.

Glue on yellow pony beads for the headlights or even on top for a siren, if you painted an egg carton red to make a firetruck!

Use a glue gun or craft glue to put one 4 buttons for wheels. I tired to find buttons that were similar in size and colour but you don’t have to.

If youa re during craft glue, secure the wheels with clothespins while they dry
