Chalkboard Herbal Pots

These handy herbal pots are not only fun to make, but will also let your kids get involved in making a healthy meal. Once the plants are thriving nicely in their own adorable pot, let your little helper-bees select an appropriate sprig from the plant to be used as you prepare your next meal. When it’s time to plant a new herb in one of the pplanters, simply erase and write the name of the new plant on the pot. This craft is chalk-full-of-FUN for everyone!

What you will need:

  • Small pot (desired size)
  • Chalkboard spray paint
  • Masking tape
  • Herb or any small plant
  • Chalk

1. Apply tape around the rim of the pot to protect it from paint overspray.

2. From a distance of 10-12” from the pot, spray a light coat of chalkboard paint around the pot. Apply two coats.

3. Let the paint dry for 24 hours before applying chalk.  Remove tape and plant your herb.
