Grow some fun. (No dirt required.)

Posted by

Earth Day is right around the corner and what better way to honor the planet than by recycling paper into a colorful vegetable garden? All kids love crafts (even if they aren’t too big on veggies). Try this out with your little one, and who knows, you may soon have a budding vegetable lover on your hands.

Supplies: egg carton, colorful construction paper, scissors and glue

Step 1: Decide which kind of vegetables will grow in your garden. Make sure it’s nice and colorful and full of veggies mama loves to eat!

Step 2: Cut shapes that resemble your chosen vegetables

Step 3: Assemble and visually place the vegetables. Once you like the arrangement, glue down all the pieces.

Enjoy! (But resist the urge to eat.)
