Valentine Flower Pots

  1. Your students will make pots out of clay for this center. There are many kinds of clays available--use whatever suits your class best.
  2. Have your students decorate the pots for Valentine's Day using acrylic paint.
  3. Your students can then plant flower seeds in their pots and take care of them until Valentines Day, and then they can bring it home as a gift for their family.
  4. You may also want to buy a tray of flowers from a local nursery if you don't have time to plant seeds.
