Kid Crafted Plant Stands

DIY Kid Crafted Plant StandsI am so excited to share today’s kid-friendly craft project because is directly from the mind of my 6 year old son! He knows how much I love to garden so he designed (by himself!) some plant stands for my flower pots! This project is super fun for kids to use their imaginations on and can be done by all ages (with a little help for the younger kids).

DIY Kid Crafted Plant StandsMy husband keeps the wood scraps from his projects for my boys to play with*. My son gathered a few of them and pieced them together with hammer and nails to make a plant stand. The other two plant stands are just simple single pieces of wood.

For younger children, allow them to figure out how they want to stack the pieces of wood then use the hammer and nails yourself.

I pulled out some of my DecoArt Patio Paints for my son to use to paint the plant stands.

*Note: If you don’t happen to have a pile of wood scraps, check your local home improvement store to see if they have little scraps they will give you.

You might just be amazed at what your kids can create when left to their own devices.
