This yogurt cup planter is a great project for kids. Use this as an opportunity to teach your children about growing and caring for vegetables, photosynthesis, repurposing, saving money, eating healthy and subduing God’s earth.
Here’s what to do
1. Save and wash emptied containers (this can be organic yogurt containers as I used or you can use baby food containers, egg cartons, sour cream containers…get creative! Biodegradable ones work great!)
2. Fill the containers with good-quality dirt just a little away from the top.
3. Label your plants! I used plastic spoons in mine to reuse them rather than toss them as well as for an adorable look to go perfectly with the yogurt cups.
4. Plant 2-4 seeds in each container, pushing each seed down slightly into the soil just until you cannot see them any longer.
5. Water your plants every couple days. Be sure not to over-water!
6. Place in direct sunlight and watch your garden grow! When big enough, transfer the plants to larger pot or garden.
See how they grow!
Use this to teach kids about gardening, photosynthesis, and growing your own food.
