Egg Carton Art

Materials

Empty egg cartons
Scissors
Paint, markers, or crayons
Paintbrush
Pipe cleaner

Directions

Cut apart an egg carton into individual sections. Make enough so that each child has at least 3 individual sections. Since the surface area is so small, the project goes fast. The more sections you have the more they have to work with.
Poke a pipe cleaner through the bottom of each section to make a stem. You could ask older children to do this prep work.

Have the children paint the sections with a variety of colors. (Markers or crayons can also be used.)
You can wait for the “flowers” to dry by putting them in a bud vase (or Dixie cup) and use them as a centerpiece at your table!

Egg cartons are great for a variety of craft projects.  Visit the link below for some ideas!
