simple flower pot kid craft

Hey everyone! It’s Bridget! I’m back to share a sweet craft that I made with my Daisy Troop — yep,  11 young ladies including my daughter! As the a leader over the past 2 years, I’ve found that crafts need to be simple and fun (environmentally-friendly doesn’t hurt either!).

So I decided to have the girls make aluminum can flower pots (inspired by Craftzine). With just a few cans, tissue paper and some Mod Podge (available at Jo-Anns Fabric and Craft Stores) my lively bunch was able to create a dozen of these in no time at all.  I really love that this could be used for just about any gift-giving–teacher gift, mother’s day, a thank you to this summer’s camp counselors!

Our girls made sweet little labels instead of a card too, which we mounted on a lollipop stick for some height. Then with a little potting soil and a lot of love, my darling Daisies went home with a lovely gift. I suggest using a simple spray lacquer for a bit of extra shine, too.

As always, we hope you’re inspired to craft, bake and create!

    I remember doing a project like this when I was Daisy-aged! I’ve loved Mod Podge ever since!
