Fun Garden Ideas for Kids

Gardening can be a great family fun activity. My kids love to plant the seeds and watch them grow. They even like to help me water and weed the garden, which is great for me! They are learning a useful life skill, as well a learning about science and connecting with nature. When they get to eat the veggies that they grow, they are learning the value of all the work they put into it.

Here are some great fun ways to help make gardening fun for the whole family:

1.Make them their own garden area to play in when they are little. Give them shovels, rakes, pots, watering can and let them explore gardening on their own.

2. When they get a little bigger help them plant their own garden to water and watch grow.

    Do you put in a garden?

    Last year we didn’t get ours done, but this year we did! Yesterday we got it all finished and it looks so nice. Hopefully in a few months we’ll have enough to can and freeze for the winter.

    Lately, I’ve also been trying to think of some fun things to do in our yard with Little Bit. Today I saw a blog post and absolutely love the ideas! Actually, I already have some ideas picked out!

    For instance, look at the pallet garden. We have a pallet that’s just taking up space. Not anymore! This week I’m getting some dirt and seeds!

    She has some really great ideas on her site, if you’d like to have a look.

  2. Back when I was around 5 years old, my Mom encouraged me to plant lettuce. I remember her showing me how to transplant and reminding me to water. When the heads got big she let me go door to door with my little red wagon and sell them. Well, that was about 65 years ago, but I still LOVE gardening. It’s amazing how far an introduction at a young age can go. Great ideas you have. Thanks for sharing them.
