This mothers day craft for kids idea is great for a gift for Mother's day. Mom's always love home-made gifts, and many moms love gardening. Why not get a two for one with this craft.
We will show you how to turn toilet paper rolls into plant starters.
When gardening you have to wait until the temperature is okay to start.
With this craft you can get the plants started in the house, while you wait for the right weather.
Once the weather is nice, just pop these little guys into the ground! The toilet paper roll is biodegradable so it will just disappear over time.
You can plant these together and watch them grow indoors until the gardening weather comes.
A fun home-made gift, that is also a bit of quality time together gardening. It's great fun watching how things grow.
There are many varieties of ways you can decorate these, but the general instructions and supplies are the same.
We've given the instructions, supplies and a few ideas on how to decorate these great mothers day craft for kids gift.
Once the weather is right, all you need to do is dig a small hole in your garden, and place one of these in each hold.
Make sure to keep the sprout and top of the holder above ground.
The toilet paper roll will eventually disintegrate and your plants will have a head start this year!
Our first idea for this mothers day craft for kids gift is a chia pet style.
You can plant grass seeds in these and actually make them into home-made chia pets. Or like us, add green construction paper for hair.
These are cute and goofy way to decorate the house (until gardening season of course!)
If you are planning on planting more than one type of seed, you can always use these plant starters as labels too. So you would create a cut out of whatever plant with construction paper, then just label it with a non-toxic marker.
For ours, we made strawberry, carrot and pea plant starters.
