In honor of Earth Day (April 22, 2017,) we wanted to share gardening projects we are doing with our minis! The projects involve 3 easy steps: recycling, painting, and planting!

We were inspired by two different looks that use recycled containers we all have in our homes. If you want to go the minimalistic route, you can follow the first photo from Enter My Attic. What kid doesn’t like to paint? Use white paint to design your favorite recycled pots. Let it dry, then let your little one plant their favorite seeds inside! To get the look mix and match clay pots, old coffee mugs, and mason jars.

The second route has a pop of color from Outdoor Areas. This has the same idea as above but now we are recycling cans, spray painting them, letting them dry, and planting the seedlings!

Let the whole family pitch in, even the little ones who tend to get messy, that’s half the fun.

Happy Earth Day darlings! And if you would like more information about Earth Day and how you can get involved, visit the Earth Day Network.
