Valentine Garden



This is my Valentine Garden. I had originally planned to grow some wheat grass in a longish planter then plant my "flowers" in a row in the homegrown green. But, things happen, or don't happen, in this case, and now I have a tin can garden full of M&Ms. I like it, though. Very cheery.
This is a fun project by itself, but for gift-giving you could make a single flower and plant it in a tiny pot of candy. Add felt leaves or a big ribbon underneath like you see tied around topiaries.
Also an activity that would be good in spring.
Only a few more days left to go crazy with heart-shaped felt!
Stay tuned for a list of links to fun Valentine activities.
(Below are close-ups of the other 2 sides of the triple-heart flower).

Oh, your garden is so pretty and cute. My kids grew a container of wheat grass, but I think that using M&Ms is brilliant (and yummier). Thank you for sharing!
