Language for Little Learners


Egg Carton Flowers and practicing French

March 10, 2010 By: Yvonne Crawford Category: Learn French spring

I remember doing this craft activity when I was little with my mother and sister. However, before we just did the activity as a craft activity. With my children, I do it as a French craft activity.

What you will need:
Egg carton
pipe cleaners

What to do:
1. Separate the individual egg cups by cutting each one apart with scissors. You may need to help your children with this part.
2. With your children, cut out little petals in the egg compartment. (You can practice French number here.)
3. Have your children color the cups with markers.
4. Push the pipe cleaner up through the middle of your flower. Bend it down in the middle of the flower so it stays in place.
5. Shape leaves out of the other side of the pipe cleaner and use the excess for the stem.

As you do this, you can try to incorporate as much French as you’d like. You can practice colors (when you children color the flowers), numbers (by counting the petals) or anything you would like your children to learn.
