Make A Mermaid From A Egg Carton

This super simple craft can be made using egg cartons. Just cut sections of the egg carton and let your child paint on them. While the egg cartons are drying, take your child on a nature hunt and find stones, shells, flowers, and any other embellishment that you think would look nice on the mermaid. 

Once the egg cartons are dried, ask your little one to put them in line – to replicate a tail. Add a leaf or any similar object for the body and stones of different size for the face and eyes. The flowers you picked during your nature hunt can be the mermaid’s hair.
