Helpful pot plant
Make this "pot plant" and give it to a friend as a baby shower gift. 

Offering a new mom help in the form of time to do things for her can be a more valuable gift than the most gorgeous of baby outfits or receiving blankets.

Make this "pot plant" and give it to a friend who'll appreciate your offer of babysitting time, help with doing her dishes, cleaning her home, making her a meal or fetching groceries for her. 

You will need:

  • A small pot
  • Some soil form your garden 
  • Take-away Chinese chopsticks
  • Scrapbooking paper
  • Double-sided tape or craft glue
  1. Cut the "flowers" out of scrapbooking paper and write your offers of help on each one.
  2. Glue each flower to a chopstick and plant the sticks into the soil in the pot.
