I planned out this simple milk jug craft for my toddler the other day and it was perfect for her total can’t sleep won’t sleep mood this afternoon she was so tired but so in denial about it that this was the only way to get her out of a mood! Of course while these eggs looks like a really simple craft (and yay, it is) there’s actually loads of little ways that you are sneaking learning in for your kid. Plus it’s fun to get the little one’s excited about Easter and crafts which involve raiding the recycling bin are always popular with me, I love a cheap way to keep my kids entertained!
You will need:
Empty milk jug, cleaned and dried
Gem Stickers (mine are from the pound shop)
How to make it:
Use your scissors to cut egg shapes out of your milk carton, I find it easiest if I cut the flat sides out of the milk carton first and then attempt the shapes. Give the egg shapes and the stickers to your toddler and let them get decorating. This is obviously super simple both to set up and make but you can talk about colours, sizes (which egg is the biggest), it helps promote fine motor skills and most importantly it was fun and it kept my toddler happy.
I normally try to get a picture of my kids crafting so you know it’s not just me acting like a three year old or something, but today she would not budge from my lap! I managed to grab all of one (slightly blurry) picture and I think I’ve managed to hide most of the zillion toys that were on my floor?? Either way, it was nice to make these together and she loved the sparkly stickers too.
