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.
3. Pick your favorite children’s story and plant a garden theme around the book.
4. Make the garden a fun place to play. Turn your garden into their own nature playground.
5. Build Fairy houses and garden’s : see my other post on this :Fairy Garden’s on a Budget
