Hello Gardeners!

Welcome back to the #PullYourWeeds blog, we are so happy you are here! Shanna Truffini, author of You Are A Gardener, often says, "Choose joy." In these unusual and unprecedented times, we find that to be both a challenge and a necessity. If this time at home has taught us anything, it's that the world is unpredictable and while it's easy to get busy with routine, it is essential to have the ability to slow down, be present with the ones you love, and find gratitude with what you have. We often think of this quote by the one and only JK Rowling,

On the blog today we have a super simple craft -great for gardeners of any age - and the results are beautiful! We are making Watercolor Window Hangers, and in honor of #EarthDay this week, we are using recycled materials to help us make them. We really love this craft because it's great for those young gardeners working on their fine motor skills, colors, and shapes!

Here is what you will need:

Basic watercolor set (if you don't have watercolors, use colored pencils!)

Sturdy paper

Toilet paper tube

Recyclables in various shapes-such as bottle caps
