An awesome "Flower Pot Person" the perfect way to say thank you to your teacher!

Every parent across the country has the same thoughts going round and round their head this time of year…. ‘what can I get my childs teacher to say thank you’  Well here is something a little different, cute and personalised. We love them and so, wanted to share them with you! 
Flower Pot Craft for end of term

All you need is:

  • Two 10cm terracotta pot
  • Two 6cm terracotta pot
  • Two washers, bigger than the whole in the bottom of the pots
  • Nut and bolt
  • String/wire
  • Mixed beads
  • Assorted paintbrushes
  • Paint, (we used Patio Paint so it could be left outside)

One of the large pots is the face the other the body.  No need to prime the pots, just let your imagination run wild and paint. 
For one person we painted a base colour and then dribbled paint down the sides, flicked paint. 
For the second we dotted blobs of paint around the pot and then with a dry thick brush randomly brushed/mixed the paints.  Allow the paint to dry between layers

TOP TIP: Did you know you can use eco-cotton buds to paint the flowers! 

Flower Pot Crafts

For the legs, tie a large bead or button to the end of the string, thread through the whole in of the small pots.  Add another 4/5 beads.  Repeat for the other leg. For the arms you'll want to use the wire so they can be fixed into a position. 

Thread the legs through the hole in the body pot, put a washer and then the nut through the hole.  Tie the four bits of string, 2 legs and 2 arms.  Place the head on top, add the other washer and the nut.  This will hold the flower pot person together.

The different people and designs are endless.  Maybe choose a character, historical person from a class project.  Or maybe a character you know their teacher love. We added some artificial lavender but a small pot of herbs, cactus or flower in the top could work too, just remember to add a dish to catch water. 

Or if you'd like to make a collaborative project with your children, why not try this simple, but very effective "You helped us grow" pot?

Fun & unique craft party

Deepa did a wonderful job with a difficult bunch of 6 & 7 year olds! They all enjoyed decorating animals and taking them home in their decorated paper bags. Lots of sheets and aprons kept everything and everyone clean. I would recommend her and would do it again too! Thanks.

Fantastic party

A really fantastic party for our 6 year old (plus his toddler sister who also loved it!). All the children were super engaged and went home with their creations at the end. Alix and Ian were brilliant and very reliable. Highly recommend!

Farah created a wonderful party for my 6 year old son and his friends. They are all boisterous and active boys. I could not believe how engaged all the boys became in the activities Farah organised for the party. I really could not recommend Farah highly enough.
