Flower Pot Kids Craft with Permanent Markers

Flower Pot Kids Craft Using Permanent Markers - The Newlywed PilgrimageI am always looking for fun and unique crafts that are kid friendly. I’m a proud aunt and my nieces and nephews love getting into my craft supplies. This flower pot kids craft with permanent markers is a project that came to mind in early summer when contemplating new uses for old flower pots that I have lying around the house.

There’s a little prep involved before the kiddos can craft. You’ll want to paint them before they are adorned by little artists. Give each pot at least 4 coats of white acrylic paint over the course of 2 days, allowing each coat to dry for several hours before applying the next coat. The children will surely appreciate a blank, white canvas to work with!

Supplies

Besides your freshly painted flower pot, you’re going to need a few items including adhesive stencils, mechanical pencils, and permanent markers. I highly suggest using The Write Dudes Infinity Permanent Markers for this project. They are quick drying, fade proof, odorless, and non-toxic. Other permanent markers or Sharpies that I have used in the past don’t offer the fine precision or the vivid color palette that these do.

Flower Pot Kids Craft - Step By Step with Permanent Markers - The Newlywed PilgrimageAs you can see from the step by step photo collage above, kids will create a design using adhesive stencils, trace the stencils with pencil, & then color away. Turned out pretty cute, huh? You’ll probably want to have the younger children color their pots free handed while older kids can have a lot of fun creating their artwork with stencils. It’s also a fantastic idea to let the kiddos pick out a plant for their pot. A little adventure at your local greenery is the perfect family summer activity!
