I just finished this painting/craft project with my 2nd graders in ART class. They loved it because they thought their finished work looked like Lego's!
Step 1: Supplies
12X12 egg carton
Step 2: Painting
Select a color to paint background of carton and paint in a few "Bumps"
choose 2 bumps to paint white for the eyes, preferably leaving a blank in between.
Next mix a skin tone and paint a face area.
Hair needs to be a slightly darker color to paint over the edge of the skin (to create a face shape)
then fill in the area for the rest of the hair.
Step 3: Painting Features
choose colors to paint eyes, lips, nose
finally use the sharpie to "enhance" any details.
The hardest part of this project is collecting enough egg cartons
