Decorate plant pots
Eating lots of plant foods helps us to be healthy. Try decorating your own plant pot!
You will need:
plant pot (earthenware or plastic)
brightly coloured acrylic paint
Lay out some newspaper before you begin. Painting can be messy!
First, mix some paint with a bit of PVA glue.
Then paint the pot all over in one colour.
You might need to do two coats.
When the pot is dry, carefully paint on your design.
Now leave the painted pot to dry completely.
Finally, put a herb plant in the pot, or fill it with soil and plant some seeds.
If you can, decorate more than one pot and try growing your own vegetables!
