I found this saying here about teachers planting seeds. There was no printable so I had to figure out how to do that myself. You can copy it if you want since it's so fabulous - ha ha! Here's what I came up with:
Next I put some seeds in a ziplock baggie and stapled that to another piece of paper I printed out about what kind of plant it was. I just copied the information from Burpee and tried to make it look prettier.
Then I took some double-sided tape and taped the two pieces of paper together.
Next, my daughter painted this pot.
I wrote a little note to my daughter's teacher (using my daughter's words) on the water-catcher dealybopper.
|Names have been covered up to protect the innocent|
I took the plant that was grown from some of these very seeds and potted half of the plant into this pot. Then I poked some holes in the papers I taped together and stuck some jute twine through it and tied all that to the pot. I had to put a few dabs of hot glue on the twine to keep it from slipping.
Wouldn't it be simply grand if I had a picture of the final product? That would be awesome, right? Well, just imagine it looked something like this only less toddlerlike:
|A certain ding-ding forgot to take a picture of the final product.|
Wouldn't it be all cherries and roses if that was the end of the story? Ahh, but it's not. Enter this chick:
This chick who totally had a cat party all up in that plant last night and destroyed it and made it look like this:
So thank the Lord up above that I originally only potted half that plant and there was another half still left on the porch. I repotted it this morning before my sunshine left for school - that way she won't be giving her teacher something that looked worse than that Charlie Brown Christmas tree Sam the cat left us with this morning. Yay, me!
