For her teachers I wanted to make something unique. She had two teachers for Monday/Wednesday/Friday and Tuesday/Thursday. Plus I wanted to do one for each of the administrators that take the best care of her! So there were 6 total.
I found my inspiration on Pinterest, the new social media hangout. Look me up at Kristen Siler Vennekotter.

I picked up 6 terra-cotta pots and 6 trays.
In addition to the pots, I bought black and yellow craft paint, brushes and markers that write on terra cotta.
We put the black on the inside/outside of the pots and trays. And the yellow paint around the rim. The black went on in two coats, the yellow took about 5 coats!
Once the paints dried over night, I took the markers and free handed the words on the bottom "Thanks for helping me Grow!" And also used the yellow as a measuring tape and free handed the lines.
I bought 6 flowers. Which kind? The pretty kind. I don't remember the exact name. And some Harry Potter dirt. It was Harry Potter dirt because the night after I planted the flowers the dirt expanded so that it over flowed out of the pots and all over my floor and counters!
Here is the finished product!
