Today was our first Kid’s Day at YFF! The project was to create a hand painted Mothers Day gift using terra cotta pots and an annual of choice.
- Terra Cotta Pots
- Acrylic Paints
- Organic Potting Soil Mix
- 4 1/2″ annual
- Paint and sponge brushes
One of our participants was 10 year old Will. He created an awesome terra cotta pot, mixing sponge with brush painting to make a sunny landscape. As the paint was drying, Farmer Tyler took Will on a mini tour of the beautiful blooming apple orchard that was buzzing with busy pollinating bees. They also checked the potato field for plants that are soon to break through the soil and spoke about the different types of potatoes that are growing.
Once the paint dried, Will put a layer of soil at the bottom of his painted pot, planted his orange Superbell,then topped it off will a little extra soil, and finished the day with a beautiful Mothers Day gift!
We had a great afternoon and plan to have many more Kid’s Days this season!
