Egg Carton School Buses

The Wheels On The Bus- It’s a song we all know, right? Well I saw these hanging in the classroom of my middle son. I couldn’t resist sharing with you how to make them because they are SO adorably cute!

Have your child(ren) paint the egg carton in a school bus yellow color.Water color paints don’t work very well because the color doesn’t dry very bold and it leaves the bus looking blah!

Let the “bus” dry over night so that it is read for the wheels and label tomorrow.
Color two black circles on the egg carton and write SCHOOL BUS on the top.
I couldn’t help but fall in love with the way these adorable buses were displayed. It would take us a while to save enough egg cartons to make an entire mobile but nonetheless it was worth making!
