It’s in the 60s for the next few days and I’m thinking about gardening and how much fun it was to work on these garden markers with the children at school last spring. It has been a little bit less than one year and these markers have been outside in all weather- they have not faded yet and I didn’t even seal them with anything. So far, I think the patio paint is a great product.
white colored pencil, patio paint, brushes, industrial sharpie
- draw fruit/veggie/herb in white colored pencil (or other color that shows up on your stone/marker but that the paint covers – try a test on the back of one stone
- help children spell but let them write in the colored pencil- I love kid handwriting on these
- add patio paint- background first and picture when that is dry
- trace word with industrial sharpie (kids added paint and sharpie and I touched up sharpie as needed)
