I was going to go to Home Depot and buy two pots for the kids to paint for the planting project ( to many “p” words there.) Then dinner time came around, and I had two left over tomato sauce cans waiting to go into the recycling bin. Bada-bing! Free. No errand needed. Couldn’t of set it up better.
So, we painted those instead. And I must admit, they are super cute and just the right size to start some seeds in. Now I wish I thought of this sooner, because a few of these lined under my window sill would look quite cute for a starter herb garden.
Brody and Owen had a good time with these. I think any kid who gets their hands on a paint brush has a good time. It was a perfect 30 minutes of busy work for these two. Which stumbled beautifully into bath time, which led to endless giggles of trying to get t-shirts over the giant noggins my boys were blessed with. Followed by the glorious noise of Dad’s car pulling up into the drive.
Best. Noise. Ever.
The cans are nice and dry and ready to be filled with whatever the kids pick out the plant. Might need to do a few of my own as well to add near our kitchen window, a little sign of spring is needed around here!
