Activity Details: DIY Decorative Pots
1. Old metal vases/ reusable jars from the kitchen/ yogurt bucket- 4-5 No’s.
2. Ropes or any other pretty strings – 3 Meter.
3. Fevicol/ glue- 1 bottle
4. Decoration material- seashells, buttons, any old dress patches
Use clean vases or jars or yogurt buckets and put some fevicol/ hot glue on the outside. Now take the string and starting from the base carefully wrap it around the vase going upwards.
Do it with one single color string or multicolored. Your choice.
Seal the ends with some extra glue and cut the extra string and keep it aside for 10 minutes to dry.
Use the seashells, buttons or the patches to create a magnificent look. Kids love pasting things with glue so let them have a go.
Now. Dry it again for 10 minutes and there!

Your masterpiece is ready.
I have done this activity with my 2-year-old and I believe this special mummy and kid activity has resulted in another fun filled day to get excited about. All she talks about is how beautiful the house looks and how she made it herself. I hanged one pot outside on my balcony and now it is a home to a little bird’s egg.
This has given a special look to my house for Ramadan and the art piece has made my child another step closer to being creative and imaginative.
Your child will not only learn to recycle but also learn to love things around him.
