Bluebells: Egg Carton Flower Craft for Kids- Perfect for spring, Easter, and Mother's Day!

 

Egg cartons are always a fun material to use for creating. (We’ve used them in the past to make sunflowers.) This time we transformed our egg carton into a bright and cheerful bluebell flower craft! You can display your finished flower craft as artwork or use it as a way to decorate a card for Mother’s Day. (This post contains affiliate links.)

Materials for Egg Carton Flowers

 

Directions for Egg Carton Flowers

1. Cut your egg carton apart into segments. Trim the edges to make them smooth and wavy.

2. Paint your egg carton pieces the color of bluebells. (We mixed some turquoise and violet to make our final color.) Let the paint dry completely.

3. To make the centers of the flowers, cut some thin strips of yellow construction paper. Wrap them around a pencil or other round item to make them spiral shaped.

4. Glue the yellow spiral to the center of the flower.

5. Once the glue has dried, you can trim the yellow centers to the correct height and manipulate them a bit to get them to look the way you want.

Tips

  • Older children can cut their own egg carton segments, but I would have an adult do it for younger children. These scissors are my favorite adult scissors for projects like this!
  • If you don’t have any real bluebells for the kids to observe, print out some pictures of them or find some photographs in books. Encourage children to look at the details of the flowers and describe how they look.
  • Use the images or real flowers as inspiration when mixing your paint color. Kids love this part!
  • Try out other materials for the center like pipe cleaners or crumpled up tissue paper.
