How to make a Tin Can Planters

What will you need

  • Clean tin cans
  • Dirt
  • Grass seeds
  • Paint

How to make it?

Step 1:

Start by painting the can any colour you want and leaving it to dry. Once dry you can paint a face on the can and stick some googly eyes onto it!

Step 2:

Once all of it is dry fill the can ¾ of the way with dirt. Then put a LOT of grass seeds on top. The more seeds the more hair there is to play with! Make sure to top up the dirt on top!

Make sure to water your plant every day and keep watching the grass grow!
