We didn't paint the bottom or the inside, and some kids painted the rim. They turned out so pretty!
I painted one, too! Mine was a hot chocolate K-cup so it had a little ridge like a real flower pot.
Then I went to our local Ace Hardware store to find some flowers. I decided to get little ones, since these pots are pretty small. They worked out perfectly! I had the kids scoop one spoonful of potting soil into the bottom of their cup, then I put the flowers in and added a little more soil to the top. I wanted to get a picture of this step, but my hands were filthy! We did this out on our playground to avoid getting our classroom dirty.
Didn't they turn out cute? I sent them home today along with our other Mother's Day gift. I think I will keep saving the K-cups. I'm sure I'll find more ways to use them. I searched the internet, expecting to find tons of ideas, but there's not much out there at all! I suppose it's only a matter of time.
