garden-activity

Give mom the gift of a garden this Mother’s Day! Whether you have the outdoor area to plant a full garden or not, these seedling starters are the perfect present for a special lady on her big day. Read on for the full instructions to make mom a recycled milk carton planter pot and start a flower or veggies collection.

Materials You’ll Need

  • Cardboard milk cartons
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Duct tape- Choose a variety of colors or patterns
  • Soil
  • Seeds

How-To Steps

  1. Choose a variety of milk cartons. Use small single-serving school lunch sized cartons, slim containers, or full gallon cartons.
  2. Draw a line around the entire carton half-way up the sides. If you’re using a small, single-serving size, open the carton completely at the top. Leave the carton as-is and don’ draw a line.
  3. Open the carton completely. Cut the carton at the line.
  4. Cover the outside of the carton with a duct tape design. Use different colors or patterns of tape. Your child can make lines, polka dots, or write mom’s name with the tape.
  5. Fill the carton three-fourths of the way with potting soil.
  6. Plant the seeds.

Your child can help mom to water and care for the plant daily. When it outgrows the carton, plant it in your yard or a larger container.
