My oldest son, Jacob created an adorable bouquet of flowers for me! These flowers are made from plastic Easter eggs. The eggs give this colorful bunch of flowers a cute pop!

————————————
Supplies used:
  • colored construction paper
  • stiff cardboard – cereal box cardboard will work
  • plastic Easter eggs (bottom half only)
  • green pipe cleaners – AKA: chenille stems
  • glue stick
  • hot glue (adult supervision is required for younger children)
  • pencil
  • scissors
—————————————
How to make them:
  1. Use a pencil and half-eggs to create a symmetrical flower shape on the colored construction paper.
  2. With a glue stick, glue the colored paper flower onto the stiff cardboard.
  3. Glue another sheet of the same color to the back of the cardboard – sandwiching the cardboard between the colored paper.
  4. Cut out the flower shape.
  5. Hot glue the egg-bottom to the center of the flower. Add hot glue only to the inside edge of the egg.
  6. Twist 3 or 4 green pipe cleaners (chenille) together to make a strong stem.
  7. Hot glue one end of the pipe cleaner stem to the back-center of the flower.
  8. That’s it! Now make a few more to create a bouquet!

This activity is a great way to recycle old plastic Easter eggs!
The kids can make these crafts for Mother’s Day or for Our Lady!
Enjoy!
