    What You´ll Need

    • 2 empty egg cartons
    • Blue construction paper
    • Cardboard paper tube
    • Paper cups
    • Black paint
    • Green paint
    • Paint brushes
    • Scissors
    • Glue or tape

    Instructions

    1. Gather all materials

    2. Cut one egg carton a little less than halfway down the middle. Paint both of these egg carton pieces green or the color of your choice.

    3. Cut the egg cups out of the second carton. Paint these egg cups black and let dry. These will become the small tractor wheels.

    4. Cut off the top half of two paper cups. Paint the bottom halves black and let dry. These will become the larger tractor wheels.

    5. Stack the smaller green egg carton piece on top of the other green egg carton piece to build the body of the tractor. Secure them together with glue or tape.

    6. Attach the small and large wheels with glue or tape to each side of the tractor body. The larger wheels go in the back.

    7. To build the tractor plow, cut a cardboard tube in half vertically and then in half again horizontally to make the scoop shape. Paint this black and, when dry, attach to the front of the tractor body with tape or glue.

    8. Cut small rectangles out of blue construction paper and attach to the sides of the top green egg carton to craft the windows of the tractor body.

    Done!
