Disk Planters craft

Last Wednesday, we had three brave teens come and brave the thunderstorm to make planters out of old 3.5" floppy disks! Using five disks we hot glued them together into a box shape. We had several empty yogurt containers, and a choice of either planting a grown flower to it or planting a brand new seed. Since the storm ended up keeping people away, everyone ended up making at least two planters and doing both a grown flower and planting a seed. (I planted a few marigold seeds in a yogurt container and had little plants sprouting up just two days later!) There were various things to decorate the disks with, including standard disk labels, duct tape and markers.

While the storm ended up keeping most people home for the day, we still had fun making the planters and hanging out and having some snack food. Big thanks to Christelle for bringing out her phone and supplying us with some music!

Our next craft day is Wednesday, May 28, when we'll be making things out of Perler Beads! I took some beads home to give it a try,and in no time had made a 1-Up Mushroom from Super Mario Bros:

(it still needs to be ironed so the beads fuse) Signups are still open for this one, so if you're interested, sign up and stop by to make whatever you want out of Perler Beads!
