Libya Egg Carton Flag {Tutorial}

We eat a lot of eggs for suhoor during Ramadan and decided to use a left over egg carton to make the new Libyan flag.

Eggs are easy to make and there are so many different vegetables you can add to them to make a meal.

This means we collect a lot of egg cartons this month, so making this Libyan flag craft is perfect to use one up.

Be sure to stop by the Multicultural Kid Blogs post on Libya today to learn something new about this beautiful country.

My youngest made the craft today as part of our 30 day #CraftyRamadan challenge and she rated it as easy.

First she painted  all the “valleys” on the carton the colors of the flag. She started with red at the fold of the carton, black in the middle and green at the edge where the two sides come together. This is to help her keep track of which colors go where. After her valleys were marked, she painted in between them the corresponding colors.

She let her paint dry and then placed a ribbon inside the carton. She closed the carton and tie the ends together so that she can hang her flag later.

Lastly she glued on the crescent moon and star. We have a set of these made of wood, but you can make yours out of paper.
