- Laundry Scoop
- Craft Glue or Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Potting Soil
- Fast Growing Seeds
Cut 3 small triangles out of cardboard. Cut a slit almost halfway down one side of your triangles (figure 1). At the slit, fold down one flap each way. It will look like a 'T' if you look at it from the side (figure 2).
Glue the triangles onto the bottom of the laundry scoop. One triangle should be in the center towards the scoop part of the laundry scoop. Two triangles should be glued towards on the back of the scoop by the handle. Glue them as far apart as possible (figure 3). Glue a button to each triangle (figure 4). Now your wheelbarrow planter is ready! Put some soil in the laundry scoop and a few fast sprouting seeds. Keep your planter in a sunny spot and make sure the soil stays moist!
