How to Make a Spacestation from an Egg Box
Egg box space stations! As we gear up for Easter we have been making lots of egg-based recipes and crafts. We have decorated easter eggs, we have made puddings and savoury egg dishes, we have even grown some cress heads with the shells. So we were delighted that this month’s material for Project Recycle and Create was Egg Boxes!
Peakles has been learning all about science at school this term so we decided to make an egg box space station for Peakles to explore ‘outer space’ with!
3 egg boxes silver foil white, black or silver paint plastic bottle tops cardboard tube
silver glitter stickers or white labels black permanent marker PVA glue
How We Made It
First, we took one empty egg box and stuck silver foil all over it using the PVA glue. As the foil egg box was drying, Peakles painted another egg box with white paint and then sprinkled silver glitter all over it for a sparkly space effect! The final egg box we painted black and again Peakles added some sparkly space dust glitter as it dried! We cut the cardboard tube into smaller pieces and then covered it in silver foil.
Once everything was dry, Peakles decorated the space stations with bottle tops and stickers. She added white labels to the space stations to make windows and finally stuck a cardboard tube ‘docking station’ onto the side of the space stations!
We had great fun making these and Peakles really enjoyed playing with them afterwards!
