Homemade Flower Pot

It is Earth Week and we are learning lots of new things this week about how to take care of our planet. Today we made these earthy flower pots using milk jugs. We glued green and blue felt on them to show our land and water. I cut small holes in the bottom and lined it with rock. Then we filled it up with potting soil and planted our flowers. I let the boys pick out what flowers they wanted from the store today and they came home with purple Pansies (Brodie, he thought they looked kinda blue) and yellow Pansies for Drew (Everything for this boy is yellow, see the new yellow sandles?)

Tony joined us when he got home and made one too. I am not sure how long the felt will last, I am keeping them under the awning outside. For now they look pretty good!Linked to Showcase Friday at Ramblings of a Crazy Woman.

That is a great use for milk jugs, we always have a lot of those.
Thanks for sharing.
