Here’s an easy-to-make container for planting seeds or cuttings from materials you have on hand.
Need an easy-to-make container to start seeds? Christie Powell, an Adult Day program manager in KY, offers this idea. Create a colorful flowerpot from Styrofoam hot cups. This is an easy project for folks of all abilities. Use acrylics and sponge brushes to paint the base. Then, add a finishing touch with glitter designs. Make a hole in the base for drainage. Add potting soil, plant seeds, and water. Keep on a sunny windowsill. Have participants water (not too often!!) and check for growth. Repot into larger container or plant outside.
