Making Animal Plant Pal Stakes - stake in the leaves of an African violetHere is another shopping inspiration you could recreate for less. Urban Outfitters sell Plant Pal animal plant stakes for $10, on sale for $2.99, but factor in the shipping at $4.95, that'll be $8 and some change for something that you could make at home for free!


Supply alternatives:
- I used brown paper bag scraps from another project as the "stake". You could use skewer, craft sticks, or a tree stick.
- I got the animals from the cereal box. You could find animals in a magazine, print it out, stickers, or even draw your own!

This is such a simple project, but the kids love it! When the kids water the plants they always have something sweet to tell their animal friends.

Total Time: 10 minutes




  1. I gathered a bunch of paper bag cuttings and twisted them to secure in place and applied tape. (This resembles the "stake")
