Sunflowers are my favorite flowers, they always look so happy! My husband knows that they always remind me of my dad, so the other day he brought me home two packages of sunflowers. A yellow variety and a red variety. I couldn’t wait to plant them!
As I was reading the planting instructions I saw that they should be started in a small containers. I was looking around the house for something I could use for small containers. I opened the refrigerator and saw the endless rows of juice boxes sitting on the shelf. Hooray! I found my containers. I waited a few days to collect a bunch and started my juice box sunflower project.
KIDS CRAFT: JUICE BOX SUNFLOWERS
- juice boxes, empty and well rinsed
- potting soil
Step 1: Cut juice boxes in half. Rinse thoroughly. Poke a drain hole in each bottom (half of your containers will already have their drain hole from where the straw was inserted.)
Step 2: Fill juice boxes with dirt and add your sunflower seeds. Water often and watch them grow!
