Including your children, while decorating your home, garden or balcony will be both an efficient activity to be done as a family and will contribute significantly to the creativity of children. In this context, children mostly prefer ideas about painting or drawing. Today, I want to share with you a nice idea that you can do with your children; tin can planters.
What do we need?
With the aim of creating colorful tin can planters, you should have empty tin cans (you can reuse your food cans or you can buy them in-store). In addition, you should have different color paints, regular size painting brush, potting soils, and beautiful plants. You can also use different colored ropes, stones, fabrics, clay mold appliques (for vintage raised design) and covers, depending on your wishes and pleasures.
After taking the materials I mentioned above, you can trust on the imagination and creativity of you and your children for the next stages. For example, you can paint your tin cans with dots in various colors. Furthermore, you can wrap your tin cans with ropes or you can use the small size of rocks to cover your tin cans. In addition, you can stick your clay mold appliques on tin cans. You can also decorate your tin cans with some animal figures tags. If you want, you can use your tin can with original color (silver chrome).
After decorating your tin cans as you like, you can make small holes for drainage at the bottom of the cans. Now, you can add some potting soil and your favorite plants. Also, you can create a herb garden for your kitchen (you can plant mint, rosemary, and parsley). I hope you will have a good and effective time while performing this easy and entertaining project.
