Recipe for Fun!

Have each child paint the outside of their flower pot with arcrylic paint. When the paint is dry, add some potting soil to the pot along with flower seeds (see seed packet for planting directions). Then talk with the kids about how often it’ll need to be watered and how much sun it will need to grow.
