How to Make a Card from Recycled Eggshells – Reader Idea
Are you in need of a card for Father’s Day, a birthday, or another occasion, but have very few craft supplies at home to use? Never fear, Creative Kids Ideas is here! We have an inexpensive and unique card project your kids will love making and recipients will love getting.
With Father’s Day quickly approaching, we thought this creative card idea submitted by one of our readers, Laurie Darroch-Meekis, was a perfect one to share today. This fun card can be made from only a few items: eggshells leftover from your breakfast, food coloring, card stock, glue and a pencil. Pretty simple, right?
Creative Kids Ideas gives a big thumbs up to this creative idea because it uses recycled materials to create an attractive end product, while also allowing kids to let their imaginations run free with the design of the card. Plus, the card project can be used for a wide range of ages because the design can be made as simple or complex as the child chooses. We love that!
In the following article, Laurie shares the basic instructions for how to make the kids’ craft recycled eggshells card, like the one pictured above. You can read the complete article here.
So, the next time you need a last minute card for an important event or are simply searching for a fun, inexpensive craft project to enjoy with your child, don’t run to the store for supplies. Just go cook breakfast.
Thank you to Laurie for sharing this great project with Creative Kids Ideas and our readers!
