I have been obsessed with clear egg carton crafts for awhile. I have used them for crafts like the DIY Bats. We have used them in activities, like our Master Builder Lego Challenge. They are also perfect for making mini greenhouses to start plants. There are a few brands that sell eggs in clear cartons. In my store all of them happen to be organic as well, so that is a win, win, in my book!
