The 'Thrillz of Hillz' dinosaur pots are a great way to re-purpose old toys that have no use. The idea is especially ideal for educators who want to spruce up their classrooms. Even if one doesn't have any old toys laying around, suitable alternatives can be found at most discount stores.
The only minor complicated part of it all is removing the piece off the top of the toys, which can be done with either a craft knife or Dremel. Of course an adult should be doing that task; however, this would be a great activity to get the little ones involved in, by planting flowers and plants. It can be an educational and crafty experience.
Simple ideas such as this one from the Thrillz of Hillz blog proves that with a little imagination and creativity, any room can be spruced up at an affordable cost.
