Kid-Friendly Planter Ideas

If you love plants and want to foster that passion in your kids, you will want to start your children with kid-friendly planters or their very own fairy garden.

Many planters and pots are made from fragile materials like ceramic. They can also be heavy! 3D-printed pots use lightweight plastic materials and don’t break as easily as ceramic. It’s a great way to start young’uns with a plant to get their green thumb growing!

When choosing a kid-friendly pot, choose one that won’t break easily, is fun or useful enough to keep your child interested, and will be something they’ll want to keep as they grow older.

Cute animal pots are sure to interest any child!  You can find many animal planters on the market (and some in our Print A Pot store!) of many different colors, sizes, and animal types.

There are pots shaped like moose, hedgehogs, elephants, cats, dogs, pandas, whales, and more. Basically, any kind of animal you can think of, there is likely a 3D-printed pot to meet your needs!

So, what are your kids’ favorite animals?

When kids sit down at their desk to do homework or color or read, a desk with a nice aesthetic helps them feel more calm and focused. Certainly, mini desk planters spruce up the environment quite a bit.  As an added bonus, your children can watch the plants grow and experience some science lessons even outside the classroom.

Fun Pots

There are a lot of fun pots that you can get, such as a pot that looks like a pineapple when there’s an air plant in it. Air plants themselves can be fun and educational for children! Plus, they’re easy to care for!

Also, there are many 3D-printed pots with video game themes and cartoon or movie characters. Since 3D design is so versatile, you can make a pot with any idea!
