6. Playdough
7. Scissors


1. Print off the template below onto a piece of card.
Cut out the shapes and use them as template to draw the shapes onto coloured card.
Cut out the flower and leaf shapes from the coloured card.

2. Decorate the flowers as you wish - the ones in the photos were decorated with textas, stickers and glitter glue.

3. Tape the flowers onto the straws.

4. Decorate the leaves (if wished) and tape the leaves onto the straws.

5. Cut out a row of 3 egg compartments from a egg carton.

6. Put a lump of playdough in the base of each egg compartment.

7. "Plant" your flowers into the egg carton, one flower into each egg compartment.


- You could paint your egg carton before planting the flowers into them.

- Get creative - use buttons, glitter, punchies, pieces of ribbons, small pieces of scrunched up tissue paper etc to decorate your flowers.
