Here is a fun idea! In honour of Earth day, we are creating a recycled egg carton flower. Dig into that recycling bin and pull out that old egg carton, let’s create something and recycle it later 😉
Materials you will need:
- Egg carton
- Paint brushes
- Paper straws
- Cut the lid of the egg carton off. Then cut the bottom portion of the egg carton into 3 pieces, or however many flowers you would like to create. Maybe you would like to make smaller flowers. If this is the case, separate each egg cup from each other.
- Grab your paint and paintbrush and get creative. Couver the egg carton with any colour or multiple colours! Allow some time for the paint to dry before moving onto the next step.
- Once dry, glue the paper straw to the back of the egg cartons, creating your flowers stem.
- Feeling extra creative? Add some leaves or other embellishments with other recycled materials. Do you have a bin full of scrap paper or maybe some other supplies that can be repurposed?
