  • my daisy troop just did a fun one! You'll need biodegradable seed starting pots - not the trays, actual round small pots. I found a bag of 22 for less than $2 at Lowes. Cut colored tissue paper into squares. Let the kids glue the squares of tissue paper onto the outside of the pot. They can overlap, be all one color, all different colors - whatever makes 'em happy. Pour some white glue into a cup and mix with a little water. You want it thinned down but not too watery. Kids then paint over the tissue paper with the watered-glue. Go over it again to make sure all the tissue paper is covered and flat. When that glue coat dries, you can eyes, nose, ears and a tail. We used googly eyes, pink felt cut to a triangle for the nose, white paper cut into ear shapes and a white pom pom for the tail. Poke a small hole in two sides (opposite each other) of the pot and add a pipe-cleaner as a handle. (cont)

  • (cont from above) We used ours as a mini-Easter basket and filled it with mini-chocolate bunnies, Easter themed pencils and erasers. You could also plant a flower or seeds in the pot. Just watch when you water it because the biodegradable pot will absorb some of the water.

  • Do you have Dollar Trees where you live? My three year old LOVES the foam Easter stickers they have, and it's easy to clean up. I just let him draw scenes on construction paper and place the stickers in the picture. Keeps him busy forever.
