Toddlers and preschoolers will love making these brightly coloured Egg Carton Flowers to welcome Spring! Because our flower craft uses re-purposed egg cartons, styrofoam trays and old buttons, it’s a great craft for Earth Day too.
These egg carton flowers were really fun and easy to make. They’re perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. I love how cute and quirky they look, and the painted styrofoam trays we’ve placed them on really makes them pop.
Another thing I love about this craft, is that we’re repurposing some items that would otherwise go in the garbage. Crafting with recyclables helps to keep your crafting costs down, and it’s better for the environment than buying craft supplies for a one-time use.
These little flowers, make me smile every time I see them, and boy, do they make us excited for spring. We’ve had nothing but freezing temperatures and snow (yes, snow! 🙁 ) for days, so our flowers are very much a sight for sore eyes.
Pop over to CBC Parents to see how we made our egg carton flower craft.
The kids will love painting them, they’ll get to practice their scissor skills, and you’ll have a bona-fide piece of art to hang at home or in the classroom as you anxiously await the arrival of spring!
