Green Craft Ideas for Kids via Green and Clean Mom ™ - Trying to keep your kids busy but you want to make

If you happen to have some tin cans around the house and you want to find a way to reuse them, they are actually excellent to use for this craft for kids. Teaching your kids to grow things is a great idea and making small herb pots with tin cans also teaches them important lessons about recycling. You’ll need to have some aluminum cans, a hammer and screwdriver, acrylic paints, Gesso, popsicle sticks, pinking shears, thin cardboard, sharpie markers, a few small rocks, potting soil, 4-in herb plants, craft glue, and some water. Clean the cans and you may want to sand the edges so no one is cut. An adult should use a small screwdriver and a hammer to tap holes in the bottom of the can. Then apply a coat of Gesso to the cans and allow them to dry.
