Egg Carton Painting

I love finding different ways for my kids to paint rather than using a paint brush all the time.  I found this great idea to paint with an egg carton on Teach Preschool’s blog.  I just loved how the egg carton formed a natural handle for the kids to hold.


  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Paint
  • Egg Carton
  • Plates


First take the egg carton and cut it into three separate sections.

Take three plates and add a different color paint to each one.

Then let your little one start painting away.

Cheeeese!  Or maybe she was saying EEEEEEE!
