Easy Herb Pot Marker

My kids love to grab leaves off of our potted herb plants and eat them right on the spot. I worry that they could accidentally eat a non-edible plant, so I like to mark all of my herbs. Here’s an easy way to label potted herbs and teach your kids the name and spelling of each plant.

Use a Sharpie paint pen to write herb names directly on the pot.

You could let your kids do this for you.

Every time they grab a bite they will be making the connection between the name, the leaf shape and the taste.
