Mother’s Day Garden

This craft is an excellent way to get a toddler to explore their senses with different material and make a lovely Mother’s Day Garden gift for mum.

What you will need:

  • Empty, clean glass jars
  • Chalk board paint and brushes (optional)
  • Letters
  • Chalk in different colours
  • Different herb for planting e.g. Basil, Thyme, Parsley, Chives, Rosemary, Sage, and Dill
  • Compost and soil
  • Watering can with water


  • Paint the end of each jar (about a halfway up the jar) with the chalk board paint and leave to dry.
  • Fill the jar with a mixture of soil and compost almost to the top.
  • Plant the seeds in the jar for one of the herbs. Then writ the name of the herb on the painted part with coloured chalk.
  • Repeat the above step for all the herbs.
  • Water each of the jars with a watering can once the seed have been sown.
  • Finally write a personal message to your Mum on the painted part of each jar with the chalk
