Spring Planter Boxes

My grade 2 students recently created these mixed media flower planters to celebrate Spring. The project was inspired by my mother in law, Jennie, who managed to collect all of the interesting shaped cardboard boxes from her workplace for me (thank you!!). 

As they looked like mini planter boxes to me, I had students paint them in a terracotta shade. After some tips and instructions, they then made various coloured paper flowers and glued them to small kebab skewers painted green. For the soil, we stuffed shredded paper into each box and painted it black before planting our flowers.
