Summertime means harkening back to the simpler things in life: sleeping in, unplanned afternoons and fun that can be had with as few props as possible. Today’s idea for fresh & simple summer fun is to take products commonly found in your home to reinvent a mini garden.

Today, we are building a mini herb garden with only 4 supplies. Here’s what you’ll need.

  • Soil
  • Herb of your choice
  • Water
  • An empty container, like a cream cheese container

Step 1: Add a layer of soil.

Step 2: Add your plant.

Step 3: Add another layer of soil and don’t forget to water!

Step 4: Let it grow!
