Egg Carton Flower Wreath Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

A cardboard egg carton magically transforms into a pretty flower wreath.  Young children will need help cutting out the cups, but will be able to complete the rest of the project with minimal assistance.

You can paint the egg cartons appropriate to the season (Kaitlyn made hers pretty spring colors):


paper plateNote:   Acrylic paint is (pretty much) not washable so young children should wear old clothes and do their work away from carpet and other household fabrics.  If you catch it while it's wet, you can get usually get it out but it dries very quickly so you have to be fast.  Tempra paints are more washable, but can still stain depending on the colors you're using (I struggle getting blacks and reds out of light color fabrics).
