Use Resources Wisely

Our plan for today's meeting was to do a couple of activities for the girls to earn their clover green petal for using their resources wisely.

Our first activity was to reuse the empty toilet paper rolls to make seedling planters.  The girls came to the meeting with toilet paper rolls and a shoe box to carry their project home.  This activity took longer than expected, so we didn't get to the other activity today.

First cut the paper rolls in half.


Cut four slits in the bottom, and fold like a box.  See  TUTORIAL below...



Fill each with soil.


Label each planter and cover a few seeds with soil in each.



Once the seedlings sprout, the cardboard planter can be planted in the ground whole.
