Go potty!

A bit of ingenuity can produce all manner of plant pots, which you can then decorate.


  1. Ask girls to bring some containers suitable for growing seeds or plants to your meeting. Encourage them to be inventive - as well as yoghurt pots or other food containers, they could bring old Wellington boots or shoes.
  2. Decorate the containers.
  3. When they're dry, you can fill them with soil and plant your seeds or plants. (You may have to leave them until your next meeting).
