This egg carton spring flower is made from a recycled egg carton, a recycled cardboard cereal box, and a thick green straw for a stem! We cut out the petals and May go to painting. John was very excited when we started, but then ran to his room to play with trucks (big surprise! — check out my thoughts on his lack of desire to paint and do other learning activities that I want to do).Sweet May loves to paint. I can trust her more not to try to put it in her mouth, but I make sure to be with her every step of the way!
Here are her petals.
I hot glue gunned it all together and woh-lah, super easy spring flower. They used it as a mask too! John, though he didn’t paint it, loved loved loved this flower. He uses it as a mask. A fun, recyclable craft that even my son loved to make and play with (until it became a sword). Can you handle this picture?!
