Preparing Plant Pots
Get any old dirty plant pots and prepare them for the coming growing season. Children will love the chance to splash around with water.
What you need:
Dirty plant pots
Washing up bowls
Warm soapy water
What to do:
Fill the washing up bowls with warm soapy water.
Demonstrate how to wash any dirty plant pots using a scrubbing brush and warm water.
Encourge your child to clean the pots.
Ways to extend this activity: Organise the pots by size and purpose. For example, keep smaller pots to one side for planting with seeds and put larger pots away for potting later in the season.
