Projects that teach our kids an important lesson and can be given as a gift AND are cute are hard to come by. Luckily we created this super fun craft for the kids to celebrate Earth Day and Mother's Day!
Turning yogurt containers into flower pots might seem a little odd at first but we'll show you how to turn them into adorable pots. If you start now, you'll have the perfect little plant to give on Mother's Day. First, have your kids eat Stonyfield Organic Yogurt. Which, if your house is like our house, will be done at lightening speed.
In our case the kids are making these as gifts for their grandmas for Mother's Day - sshhh! Don't tell! But they could be made for Teacher Appreciation, as a class project for moms or just about anything!
Once the pots are dry, fill them with potting soil and then add in the seeds of your favorite flowers.
The kids chose flowers they knew their grandmas love like lavender and black eye Susans.
While there were lots of yogurt breaks, the kids had a great time working together on this fun little project.
After all of our adorable little planters were filled with dirt and seeds, we gave them a little water and are now waiting for some sprouts. The kids loved reusing objects that would have been trash and growing something green. Bonus that it's going to turn into a super cute gift for their grandmothers!
How do you celebrate Earth Day?
