Parental supervision is recommended. This project is rated EASY to do. What You Need * Plastic 2 liter soda pop bottle with cap * Very sharp scissors or craft knife * Dirt or potting soil * Seeds * Water * Permanent black marker How To Make It 1. Remove the label from the bottle. Discard Save cap! 2. Wash and rinse out the bottle and cap. 3. Cut the bottle close to the bottom. I found a about at the end of the label and cut there. You can cut'. higher if you wish. 4. Lightly place dirt or potting soil in the base. 5. Plant a few seeds in the dirt. 6. Lightly water. 7. Put the cap on the bottle. 8. Cover the base with the top of the bottle. You have to fiddle with it a bit to fit back inside the base. 9. Place in a sunny spot and watch for your seeds t grow. 10. When the plants are ready, repot them or them in your garden. 11. Enjoy! Tips If you can find any brand of 2 liter pop that has black plastic removable bottom, then the project is simpler. Pry the black bottom off the 2 liter bottle. black electrical tape over any holes it may have in it. the top off the 2 liter bottle down to where the sides straight. Fill the black base with dirt, seeds, then the bottle over the base. flflO 00 ]amie Hi00hley is now working Expressions on Main Street in Morehead Monday-Wednesday-Friday-Saturday .......
