This year I let the kids paint, they love to paint flower pots. It is an activity we normally enjoy doing on the Vernal Equinox, but this year I gave them pots to paint for their teachers as Christmas gifts. Once they were painted we placed poinsettias inside the pots. It is my hope the children grow up understanding the joys creating and giving handmade gifts.
I have saved a few of my favorites Equinox pots the kids created. They remind me of fun times as well as make handy storage containers. I keep them up on a high shelf with really dangerous objects stored inside...like Shapies.
