Summer is for gardening right? The weather is perfect, the sun is shining, and it’s the perfect time to be out there in the garden. We’ve just planted our summer garden and needed a few markers to label our vegetables. So we made these fun and easy foam garden markers that will make it through any rainy days. They will also help us remember what we planted. It’s a win win! Plus they add a touch of whimsy because they’re so cute! You’re going to want to make a bunch for your garden.
Crafty Garden Markers
Supplies for Garden Markers:
- craft foam sheets
- craft popsicle sticks
- hot glue (for an adult)
- scissors (kid friendly)
- permanent markers
On the craft foam sheets, have your child draw the shape of the vegetable, try to use the same color of foam as the real veggie. Then have them cut it out around the drawn veggie, or you can cut it out for them. Also write the name of the veggie onto the front of the cut out shape. It’s good to write the words, giving them more exposure to reading.
For the adult, hot glue the foam veggie onto a craft popsicle stick and let them dry. Now they’re ready for the garden.
We also made some garden markers for my herb garden. But we used white foam squares and drew the picture onto that instead of in a shape.
These are going to help us remember what we’ve got growing in our garden. We’re just awaiting the spoils. I love being able to use fresh produce from our own yard in our meals. It’s so satisfying! What are some of your favorite things to grow in a garden?
