These darling garden stakes are a great way to decorate spring plants whether indoors on pots or outdoors in the garden. They can be made small or large, depending on where they are going. This activity is perfect for young children as the Bake Shop clay is super easy to mold.


Sculpey Bake Shop Clay
Oven to Bake Clay
Wooden Skewers for Stakes
Wire if Antennae are Part of the Plan


Use the clay to sculpt little bugs or critters. Use wire for antennas if desired. Insert the wooden skewers into the bottoms of the bugs. Bake according to directions in the packaging. Insert into the dirt.
