This week, I’ve been writing about container gardening activities you can do with your kids (or with your favorite kid-at-heart). Here are some more great ideas I found in the wild, wild, web.
- Sow and Grow: The cover art alone made me want to buy this book, and I don’t even have any children of my own (yet). It is a book of gardening projects and activities–indoors and out–for parents to do with their children.
- 10 Ways to Fire Up Kids’ Imagination and Get Them Digging: The ideas highlighted in this article are fun, and not the same-ole-same-ole. Okay, #7 has been around the block a few times, but the rest are pretty fresh. The author is obviously and creative parent!
- Simple Container Gardening Project to Do With Kids: I liked how this project featured recycled containers that kids can decorate. Is there anything better than arts and crafts mixed with playing in the dirt for the under 10 set?
- Cute Idea for Keeping Kids Interested in Their Gardens: TreeHugger highlighted this story. Worst case scenario, parents will enjoy their kids mug on the tomato plant they are caring for in their kids’ absence.
- How to Create a Frog Pond: The Kids Garden website was full of fun ideas for gardening with kids, but I thought this one was especially interesting.
