Egg Carton Flowers
Empty egg cartons; scissors; paint, markers, or crayons; paintbrush; pipe cleaners; construction paper; glue
1. Cut apart an egg carton into individual sections and have your child paint the sections with a variety of colors. (Markers or crayons can also be used.) 2. Poke a pipe cleaner through the bottom of each section to make a stem. 3. Cut leaf shapes out of green construction paper and glue them onto the pipe cleaners. You could also cut some petals out of construction paper to glue around the edges of the egg carton. 4. Several colorful flowers in a bud vase make a great gift or a decorative table centerpiece.
