You don’t have to have a green thumb to have a beautiful garden. Not only is growing a garden an enjoyable experience, but with these gardening ideas for kids, you can also spend quality time with your children while you create something in your garden!
The gardening gloves and shovel aren’t really a necessity, especially if you have kids that love to get dirty, but a watering can is highly recommended. Kids love water and the amount spilled from a watering can is a lot less than the amount spilled from a hose being left on.
Kids like fast results, period. Watching an ivy plant creep across the lawn isn’t exactly the most exciting plant in the world. Food bearing plants such as tomatoes, carrots, squash, watermelon and berry bushes not only grow fast, but they are edible too! Mixed wildflower seeds also sprout fast, allow kids to enjoy their blooms during summer vacation. If you don’t have all summer to wait, you can also buy adult plants, flowers and fruit trees from almost any nursery, replant them and enjoy them immediately.
So you can get your list on.
