This is super simple to do, and your kids will love it!

Here’s what you’ll need:

– pots (we got ours at Target in the dollar spot for .50!)

– acrylic paint

– paint brushes

– plastic tablecloth

– potting soil

– flowers

Spread out your plastic table cloth, put some paint on plates, and let your little artists go to town!

My girls absolutely love to paint, and to be doing it on something that was going to hold a flower and be part of our yard? Well, pretty much that made it about 100 times better to them!

Even baby got in on the action!

Once your littles are done creating, go ahead and let their masterpieces dry.

Once dry, plant the flowers (that they picked out of course!) into the pots.

Now take the beautiful pots outside to be displayed, and teach a little responsibility with the care taking of the flowers. Mini watering cans are sure to make it fun!

My girls are so proud of their pots, and love to show them off to anyone who comes over.
