Not only is this paper pot maker an incredibly practical and useful tool, it also harks back to a time when values such as resourcefulness and being thrifty were a vital part of life. A lovely way to garden with your children without ugly plastic trays and pots while teaching them how to reuse and repurpose newspaper.
Use the press to shape and crimp one large strip of newspaper into a plant pots. Once they have been planted out, the seedlings can be left in the pots when planted out to avoid disturbing the roots. The newspaper will slowly rot down in the soil as your little seedling grow. Growing your own plants from seeds is also more economical and environmentally friendly.
A lovely shared activity that can be done independently by an older child and a little bit of help for younger child.
Made from sustainable beech with an oiled finish. The storage tube supplied is also handy to keep any left-over newspaper strips for next time.
Made in England.
