I think tulips go hand and hand with spring. While we're waiting for our real tulips to bloom, this fun egg carton craft will suffice! This would make a great gift for Mother's Day as well.
I poked two holes in the bottom of each cup, using a small pair of scissors. A pencil can also be used, but this is of course a grown-up step.
My daughter threaded the pipe cleaner into each egg cup -- adding a button to the inside -- and threaded an inch or so back out.
