Potted garden crafts are so easy for kids and parents to make together. My children love to plant anything and watch it grow and they have learned a lot about plant care by making these!
Get creative with your pots - let the kids paint what they want on them. They will love it!
What you will need to make a Potted Garden...
- a plastic plant pot
- potting mix
- small plant
- plastic glue
- decorative items (buttons, shells, glitter)
- acrylic paints
Put some pebbles in the bottom of the pot or container - this helps the extra water drain out of the pot and keeps dirt from falling out of the little hole or holes in the base.
Next, add a thin layer of dirt on top of the seeds of your choice.
Place the pot in a sunny location, like a windowsill, and mist it with a spray bottle so it gets a little shower of water.
Now, wait and watch your plants grow!
