Craft a Swan Plant Container

First Grade Seasons Activities: Craft a Swan Plant Container

What You Need:

  • 1 empty gallon of milk
  • White paint (enamel paint works well)
  • Paint brush
  • Paper napkin
  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue

What You Do:

  1. Use the scissors to cut a zigzag pattern horizontally across the gallon, leaving the handle intact.
  2. Bend the zigzag edges slightly outward; these will form the swan's feathers.
  3. Use the white paint on the entire outer part of the gallon.
  4. Crumple up a white paper napkin into a tight ball, to be the swan's head. Glue it to the top of the handle on the gallon.
  5. Cut one small triangle and two small circles out of the construction paper for the eyes and beak. Glue them onto the head and let the glue dry.
  6. Put some soil into the swan and plant your desired flower!
