Easter Forget-Me-Not Pots

pot

Kids can make these delightful Easter Forget-Me-Not Pots 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.

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.
