Upcycled Egg Carton

Fun and Easy Upcycled Easter Egg Prize Holder

Are you looking for a different way to host your Easter Egg Hunt this year?  If so you don’t want to miss this fun craft and free printable Easter Scavenger Hunt!  Make sure you save a few egg cartons as those are key to making this upcycled Easter Egg Prize holders!

Materials Needed

  • Empty and clean egg carton
  • Tissue paper
  • White school glue
  • Glue dish
  • Paint brush
  • Easter stickers (optional)
  • Glitter glue (optional)

  • Cut the tissue paper into small squares (this is great for scissor skills practice)
  • Put a small amount of glue in a bowl or other dish
  • Use the paint brush to apply glue to the egg carton
  • Stick tissue paper in the glue on the egg carton
  • Repeat until the entire top of the egg carton is decorated
  • Leave to dry (the amount of time will depend on how liberally your child applied the glue)
  • Apply Easter stickers and/or glitter glue (optional).

I decided to create some Easter Egg Hunt clues to go along with our Easter Egg Prize Holder.  The kiddos will head out on their hunt with their prize holder to hold the eggs they find at each clue (there are only 10 clues but 12 holes in an egg carton so plan accordingly).  The Egg Hunt leads to the “grand prize” – aka the Easter Basket!

Download your Free Printable Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt:


The free download includes two versions – each with 10 cards.  The first version has pre-printed clues and the second version is blank so you can write your own clues.

How to Print

  • For more durable clue cards print on card stock.
  • To make your clue cards double-sided print each page of the downloaded document separately.
  • I printed the front first and then reloaded my printer with the same piece of card stock to print the clue.

Once your cards are printed out, cut them out and hide them to start the game!  Happy Easter!
