DIY: Mini Green House

I found this post on Pinterest on how to take ordinary household trash and recycle them to create a mini Green House. I knew this would be the perfect project for Little Miss. With this small project, I was able to teach her what recycling is, how to to be patient and take care of a living plant. Here is what we did:

I saved empty toilet paper rolls and a strawberry plastic container. I also picked up some Marigold seeds from the store.

I cut the rolls in half so they would fit in the container while still being able to close the lid.

Little Miss tried to take a picture of me cutting the roll in half.

We took 3 rolls, cut them in half, to make 6 almost pots for the seeds.

Little Miss scooped dirt from our backyard into each of the 6 sections.

We covered the seeds with a little more dirt, and gave them some water.

Now we wait for them to grow!

Here are Little Miss’ flowers in full bloom. We purchased a large wooden barrel from Home Depot and have them displayed proudly next to our front porch.
