Kids Windowsill Garden Project


I'm so excited to be hosting the first in our series of early dismissal craft classes for kids (and moms!) in Seattle. In an effort to create fun for kids and a moment for mom, we're hosting our spring painting and potting craft for kids class.

If you're not in Seattle, then I wanted to share this fun idea that you can recreate at home. With just a few dollar store materials you can create the most fun little spring treat that will bring the outdoors in for the whole season.

This windowsill garden features flowers from seed, but you could add a trio of herbs and start cooking with the kids as late spring produce becomes more available in your area.

Either way, enjoy this little craft! I would love to see your creations. Tag #satsumasmiles on Instagram and we'll share the love. And we'd love to see you on our InstagramPinterest and Facebook pages – thanks!

Here's what you need for your own spring painting and potting craft

Here is a handy list of easy to grow flower seeds to plant and enjoy with the kids.

To create your own little spring windowsill garden simply paint your pots, fill with potting soil, plant the seeds according to direction, and tend them.
