Make a bouquet of flowers with this great egg carton craft from momstown!
What you need:
- egg cartons
- pipe cleaners (cut in half for the stem)
- Easter grass (optional)
- Baby Food jar (or something for the "vase")
Before you paint the egg cartons, cut a slit in the cup (that way it won't be soggy when you try to cut it).
Stick the pipe cleaners into the playdough to hold them in place. Attach the flowers to the stems, add some Easter grass, and you've got a beautiful display! momstown Barrie did a great playgroup with this craft - click here to see the moms and kids in action!
Here's a fun flower song with actions!
I'm a Little Daisy - (Tune "I'm a Little Teapot")
I'm a little daisy
Tall and slim
(Stand on tiptoes)
Here are my petals
(Place hands on side of head & wiggle fingers)
Here is my stem
(Hold arms down at sides of legs)
When the sun comes up
(Make sun with arms)
And the rain comes down
(Flutter hands to floor like rain-end in crouching position)
I grow, grow, grow- up from the ground!
(slowly raise up bring hand over head)
