Ecoscraps soil –> Have you all heard of this? I hadn’t until I ran into it at Lowe’s and starting reading the back of the bag and immediately put it into our shopping cart! Ecoscraps soil is perfect for growing plants & food because the soil is organic and nutritious and allows you to grow plants and food in a healthier way! We picked up a bag of the plant soil for this project but there are so many other options as well, including flower and vegetable soil, vegetable food, all purpose food, flower food and many other combinations! You can scoop up your bag at any nearby Lowe’s store or even online!

>Kid’s Paint & Brushes –> We used a few different ones we had lying around the house!

>Piece of paper, scissors, pencil, Permanent Marker

>Twine/string of any kind you use

> Simple small pots –> We picked these up at a nearby flower shop for $1.49 each

Flowers or plants –> Olivia picked out the flower she wanted to use but you could also plant little vegetables within the pots as well!
