Looking for a quick and easy craft for kids? Try making a washi tape flower pot! This spring craft would also make a great homemade gift idea for Mother's Day.

I love easy crafts. I also love washi tape projects.

And I especially love easy crafts that double up as homemade gifts to give. Just pop in a little succulent, maybe a potted aloe vera plant, a cacti, or small flower into the finished plant pot.

Take this cute washi tape flower pot craft idea for instance. While we initially made them to keep and grow some herbs in, my boys ultimately decided to gift them to their Mee-Maw (aka my mother-in-law) for her birthday since she likes flowers.

This spring craft is great for kids of all ages. Yes, even toddlers and preschoolers, which is precisely the age my kids were at the time of creating these. But I knew my kids would love making these given their love for playing with tape. I feel like most kids probably enjoy playing with tape...would you agree?

Anyway, I love how these flower pots turned out. They're the perfect mess-free flower pot decoration ideas for toddlers and preschoolers. Much better than trying to paint them or something.

I also love that they are so simple and inexpensive to make! We just used materials that we had on hand or that can be picked up from the dollar store. Well, at least my dollar store carries a washi tape roll or two these days. I hope yours does too.

As an added bonus, flower pot decoration projects like this craft is a great way to work on fine motor skills and sneak in some extra scissor skills practice with your kids. Now let's learn how to make them!
