Forget-Me-Not Pot

Kids can make these delightful Easter gifts to remind people of
Jesus’ gift of salvation.

Age Level: 6 to 12

Activity Time: 30 to 45 minutes

For each child, you’ll need a small terra cotta pot, a two-hole
button, a chenille craft wire, and a package of forget-me-not
seeds. You’ll also need tempera paints, paintbrushes, craft foam,
scissors, glitter, glue, and tissue paper.

------------------------------------------- | Kids love our Sunday School resources! | -------------------------------------

Have kids each paint the outside of a terra cotta pot with
tempera paint. Set the pots aside to dry. Then have kids each cut
out a 3×5-inch cross from craft foam and decorate its edges with
glitter. Glue the crosses to the outer rim of the dry terra cotta
pots. Give kids each a button and have them thread a chenille craft
wire through the button and create a bow. Glue a button to the
center of each cross. Arrange tissue paper inside the pots, and
place a packet of seeds in each center. Have kids give their
Forget-Me-Not Pots as they share the events of Easter with a
friend, family member, or neighbor.
