What you need: Small clay pots, several packets of
flower seeds, Modge-Podge, paintbrush, potting soil, popsicle sticks, a
Mother's Day poem*.
What you do: Remove the seeds from packets and set
aside. Make a note of planting directions before tearing the packets into
2"-3" strips. Use the paintbrush to apply Modge-Podge to pot.
Apply strips to pot. It's okay to overlap strips to completely cover pot. Finish by
painting a layer of Modge-Podge over entire pot. Allow to dry. Fill pot
with potting soil and plant seeds according to package directions.
Staple a Mother's Day poem to popsicle stick. You may want to write the
kinds of flowers that were planted on the back of the poem, and the child's name on
the popsicle stick. Push the stick into the soil and give the
beautiful pot to mom.
