When you can't get to the park for a family picnic or venture outside to fly a kite with the kids because the forecast isn't in your favor, it's time to have some fun at home. Being stuck indoors on a stormy day is the perfect opportunity for kids to use their imaginations, tap into their creativity, and learn the value of upcycling materials that they already have access to at home in order to create something completely new. Sound familiar? That's exactly what caterpillars do, weaving a cocoon and eventually emerging as a beautiful butterfly.
To make your own DIY egg carton butterflies, grab an empty earth-friendly Nellie's Free Range Egg carton or two from the recycling bin. Since they have a handy dandy double lid to protect the eggs from jostling around, each 12-count Nellie's Free Range Egg carton can be made into a total of 6 butterflies. With just a few other supplies, you'll have everything you need to start crafting.
These DIY butterflies make adorable gifts, or can be added to your garden, propped up next to house plants, or used as decoration in the kids' bedrooms. The sky's the limit when you spread your wings like a butterfly!
