Easter Crafts with a Milk Container

I find it very hard to throw away plastic containers and have a huge stash of ice-cream, yoghurt, take away food containers and various other containers at home and in my classroom. The container that does go into the recycling bin due to the sheer number we go through is the milk container- never with its lid however - I always save those!!
I have shown various ways to use milk containers in the past but this week it has an Easter focus - of course.
Take one milk container......




1. Carefully cut the handle off and get creative with your bunny shape! This was a counting game so I wrote the numbers on the tails. 




The counting game in the water trolley with pebbles.




2. Make a cute basket with a tulle handle to collect yummy Easter treats.



3. Make Easter Bunny necklaces.
Once you have cut out the bunny shapes get the children to trace or draw the rabbits face. Thread it and then some beads or straws to make a very cute Easter necklace.





Happy recycling and Happy Easter x

  3. These are cute ideas!

    I love the necklaces and I think you could do something similar with a ghost design for Halloween.
    Thank you for stopping by the Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop this week. We hope to see you drop by our neck of the woods next week!
