It is school holidays here and my lovely friend Michelle dropped over last week with a big box of fun craft to keep the kids occupied for the morning.  Michelle is a whizz with craft which goes without saying as she owns a super cool business called Little Crate – a fabulous box filled with craft fun that arrives on your doorstep each month!

Our crafting activity for the morning was all about being in the garden.  
Follow along with these simple instructions for a great craft activity to do with the kids this week.  

Alternatively jump on the Little Crate website and order one of their crates and it will arrive on your doorstep ready to go within a few days.   School holiday boredom solved!

Here is what you will need for today’s project
Mini paper cups
Paint brush
Jiffy Soil Pellet

To start use the toothpick to peirce three small holes in the bottom of the cup so that the water can drain

Now it is time to paint – grab those paint brushes and have fun with lots of colours and patterns.

Allow your works of art to dry in the sun for a little while before moving to the planting stage


Next place the soil in the bottom of the cup and add some water – the soil we have used is a jiffy pellet but any soil will do


The seeds go in the pot next – we have used a Lemon Balm Seed

Now you need to leave your pot in a protected spot with plenty of light and and over the next few weeks watch your seed turn into a lovely plant.
