Something happens when the calendar turns the page from February to March- the days start getting a little longer, the birds start singing a little sweeter - it is not be official spring yet, but Spring Fever has definitely set in. These little egg carton flowers do just the trick. One egg carton can give you a dozen red roses, yellow daffodils, delicate white snowdrops, or whatever flower you can dream up. In just three easy steps your little one can make a beautiful bouquet.
- Using the scissors, separate your egg cartons into individual egg cups. Paint each cup to become a flower and allow to dry.
- Poke a hole in the bottom of the egg cups, insert a pipe cleaner into the hole to create your stem and bend over the end to secure it in place.
- Glue a pom-pom into the egg cup to create the center of your flower.
Older children can cut the egg cups into different shaped petals to create more realistic looking flowers.
