Unplugged Project-Yellow-Egg Carton Daffodils

The Unplugged Project of the Week was: yellow. Around here in April--yellow mean daffodils, so I did a search and found these very cute egg carton daffodils from DLTK crafts.

The first thing you do for this craft is paint a single section of an egg carton yellow. My kids just love to paint---everything.
I love the look of little hands "working".
The stem of our daffodil was simply a rolled up piece of green paper, taped securely.The DLTK link has a printable pattern of the large petal and leaves. We printed this on cardstock and painted the petal yellow and used green markers for the leaves.
Staple the large yellow petal to a flattened end of the stem. Glue the yellow egg carton section onto the center of the large petal. Staple on the leaves and your lovely daffodils are finished.
We are blessed to have beautiful daffodils in the yard. So I sent the kids out to pick a bouquet while our homemade daffodil's glue dried.

It's hard to tell which are crafted and which are real!!
Next weeks Unplugged theme is: powder (I have no idea what to do with this theme.)

I love the idea of using egg cartons. In the past I used mini cupcake liners with my first grades. I may try the egg cartons with Madeline, it uses paints which she loves.

These came out really cute. While teaching I also did a similar project with Kindergarteners where we used regular sized yellow cupcake liners for the center.
