1. Cut a Polystyrene Disk
Ask an adult for help and make sure it sits about 3 inches (7 cm) from the base of your container. Make a hole in the center a bit smaller than your pot.
2. Cut Plastic Piping
2. Cut a length of plastic piping. Make it a little longer than the height of the container, and make another hole in the edge of the polystyrene for this pipe.
3. Add Holes to the Small Pot
