A fun afternoon craft that’ll make it through harvest season! DIY a mini urban farm fit for Pony and Annie.
What You’ll Need:
- Popsicle sticks
- White acrylic paint
- Shoebox without lid
- Print outs
- Glue stick
- Gardening soil
- Scallion roots
How to Make:
Step 1: Paint popsicle sticks white. Let dry.
Step 2: Glue urban farm prints to the shoebox (starting from the top), leaving the back empty for a balcony. Depending on the size of your shoebox, you may have to trim images to fit.
Step 3: Glue white popsicle sticks around the 3 sides of the box to make a fence. A grownup can trim the popsicle sticks to fit.
Step 4: Line the bottom of the shoebox with plastic wrap.
Step 5: Fill shoebox with soil.
Step 6: Plant scallion roots at least one inch apart and add water so that the soil is moist but not drenched.
Step 7: Cut out and glue Annie and Pony and any other characters to the box.
Step 8: Leave your urban farm by a windowsill or somewhere with lots of sunlight.
Step 9: When you’re ready to harvest your scallions, leave the white bulbs in the soil and cut the green tops so that the scallions grow back.
