You will need: 3 (or more) square shaped tissue boxes, additional cardboard (we used a Pepsi box), scissors, red duct tape, and craft glue.
Trim the top of the tissue boxes to make the openings larger. Line up the tissue boxes and then tape them together using red duct tape (we found ours at Walmart, for just under $4).
After you get the boxes all taped together, cut a piece of cardboard for the roof. The Pepsi box worked well, because it already had a natural bend in the cardboard. Trim it to size, then cover with the red duct tape.
Using craft glue, secure the roof to the body of the hen house. Let sit for several hours to adhere well.
Fill with Easter grass (or hay, as we did) and Easter eggs. Have fun!
Readers, do you have any Easter egg hunts in your near future?
Captain Kangaroo lives! Looks
I really love this creation! What fun!
Oh such fun photos! Happiness to all and en
So creative! Must be so much fun.
This is so cute! You've made such creative things out of tissue boxes, I think of you sometimes when I have an empty tissue box and wonder, what could I make with this?
Very cute and creative!
Oh my gosh, this is adorable!!! Will YOU be having an egg hunt? Or going to some place that does? I have an egg hunt every year! Now I have so many grandchildren, I think I am just giving them huge, heaping baskets that I have made up with toys and candy.
Cute project. I laughed when you asked if there were Easter Egg Hunts in our near future.... My answer: NO... Kids and grands are all grown--and there are no great grands yet...
BUT--it brought back to all of the years I was a Christian Education Director in a large church in Texas. We sponsored Easter Egg Hunts every year along with a children's festival (making crafts, etc.).... I used to laugh at the Easter Egg hunts since it always took longer to hide the eggs than for the kids to find them.... ha ha
Just precious! I love it. :)
You did a fun job with the tissue boxes! We go to my MILs for the egg hunt, but we have our own here too. The kids like to do both... maybe we should get a little creative this year. ;)
When I was a child in the 1950's The Little Red Hen was one of the stories my mom read to me at bed time.
Oh that's just really cute - and clever! You do such fun things with your boys. I admire you.
We'll have a few on Sunday. :)
Nice project! I don't think we'll do Easter eggs. Possibly I'll get my husband a piece of Easter candy.
how fun! i still hide eggs!

What a cute project. No hunts planned here. But hopefully some chocolate will turn up somewhere!
What a cute idea!! I love it!! I'll have to remember it when my little ones are a bit older!! - www.domesticgeekgirl.com
Oh this will be a wonderful craft to do with wee Bay! We can't use real eggs, her younger sister is allergic to them, but plastic eggs decorated in washi tape would be just the thing!
Nope...dont think so coz over here not many having Easter Egg hunt...though many celebrate Easter
You are creative... that's for sure. That Little Red Henhouse is adoreable.
