Making clay name tags for vegetables

Here is a simple project that you can do alone or with your kids to dress up your vegetable garden a little. My son and I took out our left over clay and made up little name tags for the plants. I let him use some cookie cutters or just free hand the shape. Then I used a toothpick to make a hole and spell out the words. Then we baked them and gave them a quick shiny glaze coating and they were almost done. The next part was the hardest! Finding a wire hanger in my house is impossible these days. I took the last remaining two we had and cut them up to make a simple hook and placed them in the ground! It was that easy and he loved to help me out!
