Three Easy Gardening Projects For Your Kids
- Veggie Rocks
When planting vegetables, you can do this together with your children and have them help you label them. This way you’ll know what everyone’s growing! By using rocks and a few coloring materials, they can design and decorate to show everybody just what’s growing in that soil. You can even teach them a thing or two about gardening these vegetables by allowing them to mark the area themselves. All you need here are rocks and stones big enough to decorate. Then, identify the plant with a white paint marker. Let your kids place it into the soil where you’re planting the vegetables and let it grow!
- Egg Carton Greenhouses
For those who have extra egg cartons lying around, don’t throw them away! They can become a mini gardening project to introduce your children to the hobby. With each small room in the egg carton, add a bit of soil and seeds that will soon sprout into plants to transfer to your garden. It gives your child a sense of responsibility, and it will have them learning about the value of caring for other living things. Plus, it makes your garden look even cuter!
- Still-Life Frames
If you are growing flowers, expect them to sprout into beautiful and long-stemmed petals that will leave your children in awe! Just like the veggie rocks, you can mark and identify the flowers but with a twist. You’ll be make them into still-life frames! It draws more attention to your blossoms, and it has them look picture perfect. Use a durable picture frame, a strong dowel, and a teal bookplate for labeling. It’s that easy! In the process, your kids will have fun thinking up of names and learning more about the flowers you planted.
When it comes to beautifying your garden, you don’t need to do it alone! Instead of keeping your kids at home while you run your errands outside the house, you can opt to have them watch and learn about nature, inspiring them to go outdoors and fall in love with the earth the same way you have! Don’t wait any longer, and try any (or all) of these projects!
