Don't Lose It Use It!

It's that time of year again where you put on the garden gloves and start planting. It's so exciting sometimes you can forget what you just put in the ground.

This could leave you guessing all summer long. No worries. I have found the solution! It's an easy DIY craft that will take all the guessing out of gardening.

There are many easy ways to mark your seeds! You can keep it simple or get creative. My favorite is using old tea spoons with a picture of what you planted glued to the spoon.

The options are endless. For this one you will need


Materials Needed:

outdoor Mod Podge

Permanente markers

heave construction paper

ice tea spoons (check thrift stores or ebay)

acrylic spray coating



For this DIY craft you might want to ask the kids to help with coloring a small picture of the vegetable you are going to plant using the permanent markers. Make sure to cut out the paper the size of the spoon before you color the picture. This way you know it will fit on the spoon.

You will also want to put a small cut on one side of your circle to help it lay flat  on the spoon. Next put the outdoor Mod Podge on the back of your picture with a paint brush or Q-tip.

Then stick the picture to the inside of the spoon and press it down till you get it just right. This might take a minute.

Once the picture is in place cover the top of the picture with the outdoor Mod Podge. Give it time to dry. This will take about 20 minutes.

Next you want to seal it with the Acrylic spray. This will keep it safe from the rain and sprinklers. Now you are ready to start planting.

Remember don't lose it Use it. :)
