  7. You can spray with shellac for a shiny finish.

  8. If you want, you can let the kids plant some seeds and they can watch it grow.

They look nice outside in the summer around the yard! The kids can make them as gifts for Grandma or their teachers. Remember to bring them in when it rains.

You can also just paint black circles on the clay pot for the lady bug theme. Add googly eyes. My daughter uses them for holding pencils, erasers, etc.
