Baby-food jar with lid
Small dried or silk flowers
Craft or hot glue
Making the 'garden' - Roll out play dough with a rolling pin. Use the mouth of the jar as a
cookie cutter (if you use the lid, you can't close the jar). Hot glue (adults only) the play dough into the lid and wait about 10 seconds. Have the kids stick flowers into the dough. Leave lids on a cookie sheet to dry over night. When the play dough is dry, screw on the lid carefully. You can write a name on the jar with glitter or decorate any way you want.
