“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit” – Aristotle
Good habits lead to a successful life, the earlier you teach them to your children, the easier they are incorporated into daily life and routine.
One of those great habits is to teach your children about recycling, so that they grow up with an awareness about waste and an appreciation for preserving resources. Don’t we all want the world a better place for our children?
Arts and crafts help kids understand better what recycling is especially when being part of the process. So now before we throw anything my son asks me what can we do with it, he thinks i can turn absolutely anything into a piece of art. I like that 😉
Egg carton flowers is a cute recycling project, especially we are still in the mood of mothers day, Easter and spring. Follow this step by step tutorial to learn how we can transform a carton egg into a beautiful flower
Most of carton eggs come in white/beige colors which gives you more room for creativity to add colors and make it look like real flowers. Here (in doha) the cartons come in purple color. Not bad, it’s a beautiful fresh color too.
We attached a magnet behind to make it as a fridge magnet to attach nady’s drawings, as per his request. But you can simply add a green stem and make more of it for a beautiful vase.
The sky is the limit. You can use these flowers to decorate a frame picture, or make a greeting card, or simply a bouquet. It’s an awesome craft, won’t cost you anything but it will teach good habits to your kids and a love for arts.
