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!
