Egg Carton Craft
Celebrate the arrival of Spring with your kids with a beautiful permanent bouquet of flowers!
Kids’ Spring Flowers Egg Carton Craft
Take an egg carton and cut each “cup” into an approximate flower shape. I did this the night before to simplify the craft preparation in the morning. Make sure that you have a pipe cleaner per cup.
Break out the prettiest paint colors you have, and let the kids go wild!
Once the paint is dry, punch a small hole through the center of each flower base, and thread a pipe cleaner through. Bend it around a bit above and also below for stability. Arrange your bouquet, place on the table, and admire!

Aren’t those flowers beautiful?! I love how they are perfect for Spring and for Earth Day, too. Thanks so much for the inspiration, Erin!
