Flower Bouquet

I love this project because its easy and simple, but it keeps your child entertained for awhile. It can also be a cute table piece!



Materials:
  • ·         Toilet Paper Roll or Paper Towel Roll Cut in Half
  • ·         12 Count Egg Carton
  • ·         Paintbrushes
  • ·         Paint
  • ·         Pipe Cleaner – Green
  • ·         Newspaper
  • ·         Scissors


Directions:

  • Cut up the egg carton so that each egg holder is separate
  • Using scissors poke a small hole in the bottom of each egg holder
  • Place newspaper on the table and floor to prevent spills and as easy clean up
  • Have your child paint each of the egg holders inside and outside, all different colors
  • Once painted, let the egg holders dry
  • Meanwhile, paint the toilet paper roll, color of your choice
  • After the egg cartons dry, use the pipe cleaners as a stem through the hole and fold over to help keep its place


Now you've created a pretty project that can be given out as a gift!
