For this craft, we decided to recycle. We have made sure to recycle a empty containers (we used a hot chocolate container) to create these flower pots. We’re not only bringing nature into the house, but also saving the environment one flower pot at a time!

Step #1:

Chose the base color of your flower pot crafts for kids - we chose a nice, bright yellow. Paint the entire container with the chosen paint. Set it aside to dry completely.

Step #2:

Cut out a variety of different flowers - in all kinds of shapes and sizes. If you are not able to cut freehand like we did, just draw a bunch on the construction paper with a pencil and cut them out.

You will want enough flowers to nicely cover your pot with them.

Step #3:

Place a dot of glue into the center of each flower and glue a pom pom in place. You can use orange, yellow and white pom poms.

Add pom poms in the center of the flower cutouts

Step #4:

Bend the leaves of one of your flowers around the pom poms. Hold it in place for a few seconds. Once you let go this will give your flowers a little bend and make them stand out on the flower pot.

Step #5:

Repeat this same process for each of your flowers, it's a little bit time consuming but the end result is totally worth it.

Step #6:

Glue all the flowers onto your flower pot. All you need is a bit of glue on the back of the flower behind the pom pom. Glue them all around and fill up the pot.

Flower Pot Crafts for Toddlers

Some of my readers have asked if this is suitable for 2 year olds? I would have to say no, Mum would end up doing most of the work, BUT I do have a suggestion for flower pot making ideas for this age group.

Why not use handprints?! You can easily let a toddler stick their hand in some paint and either put their handprint on a piece of paper to stick onto a flower pot, or else get them to put it directly on the flowerpot!
