Egg Carton Flowers

By Gargi Pant; Illustrations by Shinod AP

There are times when you want to give a special gift to a friend or family member and want them to know that you took a great deal of trouble to make it yourself. On days when you feel like that why not try making flowers that always bring a smile to the sternest of faces! How's this for a great brainwave - flowers made of egg cartons...

, Art & Craft Activities for Kids: 114_1.gif The things you need:
1. An empty egg carton
2. Poster colours
3. Brushes
4. Glue
5. Scissors
6. Thick straws

, Art & Craft Activities for Kids: 114_2.gif Step 1: Cut one egg cup from the carton.

Step 2: Make six to four cuts on the broad part of the cup.

Step 3: Bend and curl the cuts in different ways. Your flower petals are ready and you can make a budding flower or a flower in full bloom by the way you arrange the 'petals'.

, Art & Craft Activities for Kids: 114_3.gif Step 4: Stick a thick straw to the bottom of the cup and the flower stem is ready. You could even use a piece of wire for the stem.

Step 5: Now give this flower the shades of colour that you want. The choice is yours - whether you want to give a bunch of roses or a mixed bouquet!
