Vegetable Garden Labels

As we are preparing for our vegetable garden I got to thinking about what I would use to identify our little sproutlets!  Normally, I just use a craft stick and write the name of the vegetable on it.  Since Tiffany is more excited this year and more aware of what the garden is about I came up with something cuter and more kid oriented to make it that much more exciting for her.

For about the past 4 weeks we have kept our seedlings indoors waiting for the weather to be consistently more favorable for our sproutlets.  Once we plant them into our garden we will use these to identify which vegetable is which.  I did have to put our cucumbers in a bigger pot so I have the cucumber label in that pot now. Since we grew our seedlings in a cupcake holder it's just not deep enough to put the other craft sticks into so we will wait until they get planted outside, which I'm hoping will be in about a week.

Here's what you need to make these cute garden labels:

Craft sticks
Googly eyes
Glue (I used a hot glue gun)
Permanent marker

These are so darn easy to make and are as cute as can be.  Simply cut out your foam to look like whatever vegetable, flower, fruit you want to identify.  Attach some googly eyes and write on what it is, ex: tomato, pepper, sunflower, etc.  Glue the foam cut out to the craft stick and you have yourself a cute garden label that will put a smile on your child's face (and yours too!) We have some more seeds including flower seeds so we'll be making more of these cute labels.

Happy Planting!
