Super Simple Mother's Day Craft!

Mother's Day is just two weeks away . . . if you are looking for a fun craft you could help your grandchildren make for their mother . . . especially your youngest grandchildren . . .  take a look at this one! It is simple, allows children to show their own unique creativity and involves recycling . . . what could be easier and better? I found this craft on Pinterest, but remember making similar flowers when I was a child! 

All you need to make these egg carton flowers are egg cartons, pipe cleaners and craft supplies! Follow this link for the simple directions and watch as your grandchildren create their own special bouquets for their moms! If you have a "flowery" perfume, you could "mist" the completed flowers to give them a "real" fragrance for some added fun!

As you and your grandchildren make bouquets of flowers be sure to talk with them about how God created real flowers from nothing. Share some photos of real flowers with your grandchildren and help them identify some of the different flowers. Ask them which they like the most and what colors they think make the prettiest flowers. Lead them in praising God for creating such a beautiful world for us to live in!
