Toddlers and preschoolers will love making these brightly coloured Egg Carton Flowers to welcome Spring! Because this 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 provide kids with an opportunity to explore an assortment of interesting materials to create a pretty piece of art for spring.
See our egg carton poppy craft for alternatives for stems and centers.
I love how cute and quirky these flowers are, and gluing them to a styrofoam tray gives the whole project the look of a framed piece of art.
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 cold and dreary days for weeks, so this bright and colourful craft really lifts the spirits.
Pop over to CBC Parents to see how we made our egg carton flowers.
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!
