Creative Clubhouse KIDS

Make an Egg Carton Whale with Us!

Before beginning this project ask your grownup to cut out a piece of an egg carton and cut a little hole on the top of the egg carton for you!

What You’ll Need

  • Blue Construction Paper
  • Your Piece of Egg Carton with a hole on top
  • Pipe Cleaners
  • A Marker
  • Safety Scissors
  • Double Edge Tape

This project requires cutting. If you do not have safety scissors, make sure a grownup is helping you cut! 

What To Do

 

  1. Draw your whale’s tail and two sideways teardrops for your whale’s flippers.
  2. Cut out your tail and flippers
    If you do not have safety scissors, make sure a grownup helps you!
  3. Tape your tail and flippers onto the piece of egg carton.
  4. Draw eyes and a mouth for your whale on the front of the egg carton piece with your marker.
  5. Cut your pipe cleaners in half to create six pieces of pipe cleaners.
    If you do not have safety scissors, make sure a grownup helps you!
  6. Curl the tops of the pipe cleaners!
  7. Place the pipe cleaners in the hole at the top of your whale!

And now you have your Whale!
