End of the year gift for a teacher - using terra cotta paint, made flowers out of kids' fingerprints. Wrote "thank you for helping us grow!" and the year, then wrote all the kids' first names. Sprayed with terra cotta spray to make it waterproof and protect the paint. Planted a mini "serenity garden" in the pot - lavender, chamomile, rosemary, lemon balm. Teacher loved it!
