Garden Markers for Planting a Rainbow

We've been so excited to start planting our garden, ever since we read, "Planting a Rainbow." After our trip to the store to get our "rainbow" seeds, we decided we needed rainbow markers to label our garden. Today we painted and glued wooden flowers together. We are going to use them as plant markers in the kids garden. 

 We bought the wooden flower cut-outs at the Dollar Tree (10 for a dollar) and used acrylic paints with foam brushes.

The girls started with their favorite colors, blue for Abby and pink for Selena.
Pretty soon we had a little rainbow factory!
Now, all we need are some little plants. We are planting our seeds on Friday, April 1st!

This is where we will be growing our gardens this year.
