Egg Carton Flower Craft for Toddlers and Preschoolers

This beautiful little flower was made by my son! This is a great little craft for Mother’s Day presents from the kids, as well as for spring/nature themed lessons. All you need is a pipe cleaner, egg carton, and some paint! Cut the little cups of the egg carton into individual pieces. This will be the flower head. Poke a small hole in the bottom of the cup to thread your flower stem (green pipe cleaner) through. Now let your kids paint paint away!! I personally prefer acrylic, but we used washable tempura paint for the kids. The washable paint will take a little longer to dry and will not be as brightly colored but is perfect for the kids.
Even the youngest child can participate in this craft!
