Springtime garden mural.


Cupcake wrappers, large and small
Egg carton, with each cup cut apart
Pipe Cleaners (or Popsicle sticks)
Green, blue, red, pink, yellow paint
grass, real or the fake kind for easter baskets

1. First you need to cover the board or wall that you are using with white paper. Have the children paint the top half blue for the sky. Finger paint works well for this.

2. While the paint dries,let the kids decide if they want an "egg" tulip or "muffin" daffodil. For the tulip, have them paint the outside of the egg carton cup then poke a hole in the bottom and insert the pipe cleaner stem. For the cupcake wrappers, open up the large wrapper, put a drop of glue in the center and then place a smaller wrapper in the middle. Last, glue a pipe cleaner to the back of the large wrapper.

3. Spread glue on the bottom half of the white paper and have the kids stick the grass on to cover.

4. Arrange the flowers in the grass and enjoy the view!
