Egg Carton Tulips
How we did it:
- egg carton
- pipe cleaners
- paint & paint brush
First we the egg cups off the carton. Did you ever notice they are the perfect shape for a tulip?
I poked two holes in the bottom of each cup, using a small pair of scissors. A pencil can also be used, but this is of course a grown-up step.
My daughter threaded the pipe cleaner into each egg cup -- adding a button to the inside -- and threaded an inch or so back out.
Next, we just twisted the two ends together.
The kids got to work painting each flower. We used watercolor paints, but any paint will work. You can even use markers.
Emma was so proud of her flowers and decided to give this bouquet to her teacher.
