Garden projects with kids: concrete

I am always looking for crafty activities to do with my kids in the garden.   Recently we made some concrete labels for our plants, and some just for fun.

We found a kit at a thrift store which had large letter stamps to press in a concrete slurry we mixed ourselves.  The closest I could find to this kit was this:Midwest Products Traditional Letters and Numbers Stepping Stone Stamps They turned out OK, but  I can’t wait to do it again now that we’ve had some practice.  And I am thrilled that my favorite publisher has just released a new book Concrete Garden Projects: Easy & Inexpensive Containers, Furniture, Water Features & More with ideas and tips for concrete garden projects.  I’m looking forward to checking the book out!  They also happen to be having a cool giveaway here . Finally, to see a demonstration of one of the projects – check out the video below.  It stars Emma who happens to be my Timber Press publicist!
