Plant a Party Favor
Have the children paint their own pots, plant flowers, and take them home!
Materials
  • Small terra-cotta pots and saucers, one for each guest
  • Flowers - 1 per child
  • Non-toxic permanent paint, such as acrylic
  • Paint brushes
  • Potting soil
  • Small hand spades or sand shovels
  • Small stones or pebbles for drainage
Steps
Step 1
Before the party, do a base coat of paint
It might take a few coats because the paint soaks into the ceramic pot.
Step 2
Have the kids decorate their flower pots

Have the kids use their creativity to paint the outside of the flower pots. Have them paint their names on the bottom of their pots.

To make dots on the pots, they can dip their paint brush handles in the paint and press them against the pot.

Step 3
Put a few pebbles at the bottom of each pot to allow for drainage
Step 4
Place a flower in each pot

 

Step 5
Put dirt around the edges of the flower
Then send everyone home with reminders to put the flowers in sun and water them.
