Mother's Day Flowers! Kid Craft!

We Love Nanny and we love to give Nanny flowers. 
We don't love that flowers don't last, and can get kinda pricey this time of year...

So we thought that Nanny might like some homemade flowers for Mother's Day this year! (which really means Momma is so excited that Delaney is old enough and interested enough to make her own gifts for her Nanny!

Here's how we did it!
First I cut down an egg carton into the individual cups.
Then I trimmed them down and cut down the sides to create the "peddles"
Then I let Delaney paint them on one side
 We let them dry over night and the next day painted the other side.
Once they were dry I put pipe cleaners through the bottoms to make a stem. (I did that by putting a straight pin through the bottom of the flower and threaded the pipe cleaner through it.)
Then we placed them in their vase... a toilet roll... (to be painted or colored today!)

And there you have it an easy Mother's Day project for the kids!
