Egg-cellent Ideas!

The Easter Bunny has hippity-hopped through town, and now you're left with several dozen hard-boiled eggs and empty egg cartons.  (If you had a really great Easter, you even have a few empty South 'n France Bon Bon egg cartons sitting next to your fainting couch).  What do you do with all of those leftovers?  Hard-boiled eggs are great for egg salad sandwiches, deviled eggs, and salade niçoise, but egg cartons aren't so tasty. Still, they can be useful. For example, if you're feeling creative you can make your own egg carton toy camera. Isn't this little photographer just too cute? The lens of his camera is the top of a sports drink bottle.

Speaking of creativity, egg cartons make wonderful disposable paint palettes for your kids: use the compartments to hold various colors of poster paint, and the lid as a place to lay down the paintbrush. For easy clean-up afterwards, just close the lid and toss the whole egg carton into the trash. Or, de-clutter your office desk drawer by removing the lid from the egg carton and using the bottom tray to sort paper clips, rubber bands, thumb tacks, staples and other tiny office accessories. Want more fun ideas for your egg carton recyclabes? Get inspired by these nifty ideas on how to re-use egg cartons from CultCase.com, a culture and online art magazine.  They've thought of everything, from goggles to flowers to lamps.
