Mother's Day corsage

Mother's Day corsage

Preschoolers can make this pretty corsage and present it to mom on Mother’s Day!

What You Need: 2 jumbo-size muffin tin liners; 2 regular (cupcake) size liners; red marker; section from egg carton; yellow paint; green pipe cleaner; paintbrush; scissors; adhesive (glue, stapler or tape).

How to Make It: Paint egg carton section yellow and let dry. Have children cut into the ruffled sides of the liners, from the edge to where the ruffled part ends. They can make cuts about 1/2″ apart, or make designs or whatever they’d like. Run red marker around edges of each liner. Stack liners and secure in center with stapler or glue. Bend pipe cleaner into leaf shapes and secure on back with stapler or tape. Glue or tape yellow egg carton section to center.

How You Make It: Pick some tiny flowers and dry them between paper towels in a heavy book for a day or two. Lay one piece of Contact paper sticky-side up on a flat surface. Gently place flower onto Contact paper. Cover with another, similarly sized piece of Contact paper. Press to remove air bubbles. Trim to shape of flower, leaving at least half an inch space around the flower. Punch hole near top. Thread ball chain through hole.
