Labeling Plants

We had a wonderful, jam-packed day, lunching with cousins at the lake, learning about power, and planting. This year we decided to get a little more creative with our plant labels.
Painted extra-large Popsicle sticks painted clothespins


small rocks, labeled with permanent pens





itty bitty hand-painted signs
house objects, labeled and put to good use


more clothespins (this was the easiest one for the younger kids to do)








clothes pins, painted and put in the soil upside-down to hold the plant placard


and, one of my favorites, nestled eggs with special messages.

We have many more things to plant, including our raised garden this week. Let me know if you have suggestions for other fun, artsy tags.
