Decorating Flower Pots and Planting Seeds

ages 2-6


Small flower pots, paint, paint brushes or sponge brushes, potting soil, flower seeds

Activity Detail

This can be a great party craft or a fun project at home. Have kids paint the outsides of their flower pots and allow to dry. When pots are dry enough to handle, have the kids pour in the potting soil and sprinkle seeds in. Hopefully in a few weeks they will have a sprouted plant!

Other Savvy parents recommend decorating your flower pots with more than just paint -- buttons, stickers, googly eyes, and foam letters are good choices. They also recommend picking up some child-size gardening tools from the store so that your child will feel more ownership of the project.

Plan an outing to your local Arboretum, community garden, or farmer's market in conjunction with this craft. You might also check out a few books from the library to help illustrate the concepts that you are trying to teach.

My kids like to do this activity with small tomato plants. They have a great time watching the tomatoes grow bigger and ripen.
