And while Easter this year may be a little different for most of us, theres still lots of fun things you can do at home - on your own or, if you have them, with the kiddos. So roll up your sleeves and lets get crafty with this cute little project!
In the name of all things frugal, weve prepared a craft activity that calls for items you probably already have at home: empty juice cartons! So drink up, rinse out, and youll already be halfway through the list of materials needed - well, almost! All the materials you need for this kid-friendly craft are listed below.
- A few empty cartons
- Acrylic or spray paint
- Potting mix and seeds
- Chocolate eggs or your favorite candy
- Glue or sticky tape
Youll need several layers of paint to disguise your juice cartons properly. We primed ours with plain, white paint first, before using our happier colors on top.
Once the paint has dried and youre happy with the result, its time to cut your cartons in the shape you wish. We cut out the base for a bunny and a chicken.
And now, to our favorite part - transforming our sad old cartons to happy little baby animals! You can draw eyes, beaks, ears and everything else by hand. Alternatively, you can download our template with cute little details that will add tons of personality to your new pets! Just print out, color in and glue them on.
Your Easter pets are now ready to be filled with nice things. We filled our chickens with potting mix and and sowed some wild flowers seeds - hopefully theyll sprout quickly! We filled our other animals with yummy chocolate, of course!
These cuties are a lovely alternative to the traditional Easter egg, and could even work as a thoughtful surprise to leave at someones door, in these times of social distancing.

And oh, HAPPY EASTER! :)
