6 Gardening Ideas
Get Crafty. Children love to craft and create, and a garden makes a perfect place to display their lovely creations. Get your little one to make vegetable markers out of popsicle sticks, let them paint on rocks, or create fun little stepping stones.
“Plant” a rock garden. Sound weird? Take the kids to a park, the beach, or out in the country and tell them to find the coolest rocks they can. Once you have a good amount, take them home and hose them off. Then find a little patch that you want “landscaped” or an edge around a garden or tree and lay them out.
Use creative gardening containers. I saw a fun idea where gardeners used unexpected items to plant flowers in. Get creative with your little ones — put your plants in your old boots, old watering cans, hats, mugs, old toys (like plastic wagons, boats, sand pails, etc.), and more. Your kids will think it's kind of crazy and fun! Then display your wacky gardening art for the world to see.
