Milk Carton Animals

My two-year old is in a barn animal phase. It's super cute--all his animal noises and the pointing out of each cow and pig he sees everywhere we go (it's surprising how often we see them!) I wanted to make an easy animal craft with him that he would enjoy.

  1. Ages: 3 - 8

  3. A little messy

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    We started off by wrapping our milk cartons with construction paper and tape. I helped Grayson with this. He enjoyed placing the tape for me.

  • Step 2

    Once covered, he added some googly eyes and felt ears using glue. Our pig was just about done.

  • Step 3

    All he needed was a cute little curly (pipe cleaner) tail that Grayson attached easily with a piece of tape.

  • Done!

    The fun animal play began. Grayson thought this pig could fly for some reason and ran from room to room oinking, snorting, and flying his pig through the air.
