Do you garden with your kids? I love to have my kids with me in the garden. Kids are naturally curious and are eager to learn about how things grow.
Here are a few ideas that you can do with your kids or even your grand-kids.
How about planting a vegetable garden from seed?
My kids just love going out in the vegetable garden each day to see what has sprouted. It gets even better when your plants start to produce…
Do you like flowers? How about transforming your children’s old plastic pool and create a planter?
Let your kids choose their favorite flowers…
Then poke some holes for drainage, fill with soil and plant. Let the kids water their new garden with a kid-sized watering can.
I also like to include my kids when I prune my shrubs. I explain to them why we prune and where to make their pruning cuts.
My son really enjoyed pruning off the spent flowers and even though the shrub was taller than he was, he felt like a ‘big boy’ for being able to help me out in the garden.
Other ideas you can try with your kids is creating a hummingbird or butterfly container garden. They will love to see hummingbirds or butterflies visit the garden that they created.
