Today is my daughter’s last day of daycare before Easter. Last night we made a few Dixie Cup Easter baskets for her daycare friends.

We had Dixie cups everywhere. While our cups were drying, we continued to play and experiment with our other cups. Since it is finally feeling like spring, we thought we would plant some spring flowers around our house.

Make 6 equal cuts around a Dixie Cup leaving about a 1/2 inch at the bottom of the cup.

Use the other pipe cleaner halve to form leaves around the stem.
