From the blogger: "This egg carton turtle is both easy and fun to make – and seriously… an egg box does not get much cuter than this!! This is such a good idea to do when learning about the sea or reptiles! It is also a FANTASTIC way to start talking about nature conservation – and about protecting the beaches – and no drive areas where the turtles lay their eggs."

Wait – before you toss that empty egg carton, check out the Absolutely Cutest Egg Carton Turtles! Taking materials lying around your house, show your kids that they can have fun without needing to buy supplies from the store. Turn trash into treasure with egg carton crafts for kids like these turtles. Inspired by beautiful sea turtles, these adorable friends are very easy and inexpensive to make. This is the perfect opportunity to teach your kids about sea creatures and nature conservation. Bet you’ve never seen egg cartons as cute as this!

Just love using the paper egg cartons for crafts since they are readily available. These turtles are the cutest and as mentioned what a great way to bring up a lesson on these creatures. Add a flat bottom and glue on a magnet so this buddy can hang out on the fridge! Love it! Thanks for sharing!

I am forever looking for things to do with my niece and nephew, at the minute my nephew is obsessed with a film/cartoon about sea turtles so I have stumbled across this at the perfect time to make them with him! I can't wait to try them out with him

OMG. These are so incredibly adorable. I think my godkids would love these... especially with Finding Dory set to come out in June (those little buggers always did love Squirt more than anyone else). Thanks!
