How to Make the Egg Crate Pumpkins

Materials you'll require:

  • Orange toddler-friendly paint (feel free to use red/yellow for layering)
  • Paintbrushes
  • Black marker
  • Upcycled straw cut in short lengths (preferably green/red/brown to look more convincing as pumpkin stalk)
  • Scissors or penknife to poke little holes in egg crate for straws to fit

These are the simple steps:

  • Clean and wipe dry an empty egg crate
  • Invite toddler to paint all over the egg crate
  • Use dark marker to draw jack o lantern faces
  • Poke little holes into each egg crate compartment for straws to fit
  • Cut up a long straw into 4-5 shorter segments to poke through the little holes
