DIY Spring to Summer Pansy Planters
These DIY Spring to Summer Pansy Planters have brought so much color and cheer to our yard and it was a pretty inexpensive and fun activity for my family.
We planted them in the Spring (Mid-May) and if you take care of them, they can last throughout the Summer.
Planting flowers and watering them is a great way to show children how to care and nurture, as well as connect to nature.
We certainly enjoyed this outdoor, gardening activity with our kiddo!
