    Hey Cas with Rayno, I have another idea that would also be cute!
    First, paint the pot green. (or buy a green pot, doesn’t matter)
    Second, Glue the googly eyes on the pot. The only difference is you keep the pot right side up!
    Third, draw on the mouth.
    Fourth, glue the pipe-cleaners around the BOTTOM of the pot. Now you should have a bug that’s got a big hole in the top, right? Plant your favorite flower in it and water it daily! Cool huh?
