The Fairy carefully painted egg cartons.
Then we cut out flower shapes from coordinating card and felt.
I made 2 slits in the flower and the egg carton. Then The Fairy threaded a green pipe cleaner through to make a stem (after checking we had enough - an impromptu maths lesson). We found adding a small circle of card or felt over the top of the egg carton not only looked pretty but helped to strengthen the carton (other wise the two slits ripped and made a giant hole!)
We found that the flowers stand best in the vase if the stems were twisted together to make a bunch. Who do you think would like some home made flowers?
