1 Hour : Make It : Early Garden

image via

My daughter has been asking when we can plant seeds and I know that with the spring-like weather, I'm also eager to grow something. So, this project from Family Fun is exactly the thing we need to get going on our indoor garden. We have a couple packets of flower seeds and I want to try some herbs as well.

Clear 2-liter soda bottle
Small flowerpot
Potting soil
Craft stick marker

1. Cut the top from a clear 2-liter soda bottle.

2. Find a flowerpot that fits inside the dome. Fill the pot with potting soil, then plant the seeds according to the packet directions. Tip: Consider planting herbs, such as parsley and basil, that can be transplanted outside once the weather warms, or grass, which grows fast and is fun to trim with scissors.

3. Place the pot on a saucer and poke in a craft stick marker. Slip the dome over the pot. Be sure to water the soil when it looks dry.
