Egg Carton Bugs form Ginger Snap Crafts

Ginger from Ginger Snap Crafts is here today with a super cute craft that your kiddos will love! 


Hi there! 
I'm Ginger from over at GingerSnapCrafts.com, & I'm so excited to be here today visiting A Glimpse Inside. :) I have 5 kiddos, so I am always looking for fun things for them to do! 

Today I'd love to share a fun activity that we have done several times over the years ~ making bugs! 

The first time we made these my oldest was turning 2 (he just turned 18!). He had a bug themed birthday party that year, & this was one of the activities we did. It was a hit! This also makes a great summer kid craft to make on those hot summer days. 

So keep reading to see how easy these ~ Egg Carton Bugs ~ are to make. :)




You'll need a few things to get started:

  • cardboard egg carton
  • craft paint
  • foam brushes
  • school glue
  • hole punch
  • googly eyes
  • pipe cleaners
  • construction paper

You'll cut the egg carton in pieces. You can do all different combinations. One spot for spiders & ladybugs, 2 spots for ants & longer ones for caterpillars & worms.


Then let your kiddos paint their "bugs" however they want.


Then you can use a hole punch to make spots for the antennas & legs. (This is probably an adult's job!)


Then stick in your pipe cleaners. Curl them with a pencil if you'd like to!


Then add some googly eyes!


We made a "home" for our bugs with the top of the egg carton. We painted it green, & then added some construction paper grass. :)


Meet our bugs! Aren't they cute??



Here are some more fun kid activities that you can find over on my blog!













Thanks so much for having me over! :)




Thanks so much for sharing those cute bugs Ginger!!
