Making Up-cycled Planters for Earth Day - My kids are gonna love cutting apart the bottles and adding the goggley eyes

Earth Day Activity: Recycled Planters

Up-cycled or recycled planters are the perfect Earth Day activity for kids, which is coming up April 22nd (only 2 days after Easter so don’t blink and miss it).

It incorporates two earth-friendly activities – up-cycling AND planting – plus this particular version involves goggley eyes and what kid doesn’t love those?

Check out my full tutorial over on eHow’s Mom Channel.
