Minnie Mouse is a huge favorite of mine and my 6 year old daughter! We love painting and decorating clay pots as you can see from our Love Bug Clay Pot craft so we decided to make a Minnie Mouse pot and use it for some plants!

My kids are always bringing seedlings and buds back from school. Recently they brought home a bud that grew into a beautiful daffodil. 

To encourage their love of gardening and caring for plants and flowers I thought it would be great to start doing some planter crafts. These are perfect for Spring and Summer!

What other planter pots would you like to see here? Would you like some Princess themed ones or how about some superheroes? I do plan on making some more whenever I get the time.
