being MVP: Mini Herb Pots Craft for Kids @orientaltrading

Mini Herb Pots Craft for Kids @orientaltrading

Disclosure: This is a partnered post with Oriental Trading. All opinions are my own.

Kenzie just loves gardening and I think it's because she was encouraged at a young(er) age by grandpa. So while I am actually a semi-black thumb, she seems to be a natural and her plants at the inlaws' home are thriving. She's been asking for her own "garden" at home so I decided it would be fun to start with some herbs and Oriental Trading had just the perfect little pots.



1.  Take a ceramic pot and give your child free reign to decorate with the acrylic paint markers. Make sure to write the corresponding name of the herb on the pot somewhere. Set aside and allow to dry.

2.  Using a small shovel, put some soil into the pot and add the herb plant or seeds. Top off with some more soil and then water a bit. Make sure not to over water as these pots do not have drainage holes on the bottom.

3.  Wrap some jute cording around the pot and knot securely. Place on balcony or backyard and allow your child to take care of their awesome herbs and perhaps even "cook" with them!

These would also make great gifts for school teachers!

  2. This is a great idea for my grandsons! They would love to decorate each one and watch it grow!
