We had a silent auction last week and each class was given $15 from the PTO to come up with something to be auctioned off from their class. This project was inspired by a Mother's Day flower pot I saw on Pinterest.
This is an easy to make project that I make with my firsties for the auction. I think it would make a great teacher appreciation gift or room mom gift. It is pretty enough to keep for yourself!
I took a plain terracotta pot and painted it light blue with water-based craft paint. Then I used a student's fingers to make the grass and added bugs, birds, and flowers with the rest of the class's thumbprints and fingerprints. After the paint dried, I used a Sharpie to add the detail to the bugs. I love how it turned out.
