Now that Spring is in full bloom, I’m always looking for creative ways to get my little ones out in nature.  No matter what the holiday is, crafting is alway a must in our family. Hope you enjoy this Earth Day craft as much as we did!

Stella is natural-born DIYer, so it comes as no surprise that she also has a green thumb. I’m excited to share Stella’s very own DIY Egg Crate Flower Pot. Stella’s craft is quick, easy and perfectly celebrates Earth Day!

Supplies: 

Recycled Egg Carton

Scissors

Paint (any color)

Paint brush

Fresh soil

Seeds (any variety)

Water

Step 1:

Cut the egg crate in half — or use both sides for double the flowers!

Step 2:

Paint the egg crate (any color you wish!). Stella chose green to match her Earth Day theme, but no color is off limits when you are crafting!

Step 3:

After the paint dries, add a small amount of soil to each section of the egg carton. Drop in a few seeds and loosely pat down with more soil on top. Heads up: pouring the dirt can be a bit messy, but that’s all part of the Earth Day fun!

Step 4: 

Add some water to your new planter and watch your flowers come to life!

I look forward to watching Stella care for her new flowers. Maybe we’ll transfer them to the garden together as a fun summer project! Do you have a favorite Earth Day craft?
