I saw this idea to make mosaic flower pots on the Family Fun website. We decided to make these for Mother's Day, but they would also be cute to make for your favorite teacher. Instead of using ceramic tile grout, we opted for a less messy and easier alternative - Crayola Model Magic Clay! We love this stuff! Not only is it inexpensive, but it's easy to use, not messy and dries easily.
Each of the kids started by rolling their clay into a long snake that would wrap around the entire pot. Then, using their fingers and palms of their hands, they flatted the clay so it covered the entire pot. Once it was spread out, they stuck some fun crafty items into the clay, creating a mosaic effect. We let them dry overnight, then planted some pretty flowers in each. This was a very easy and quick gift project, and the kids really enjoyed making and giving them!
