Gardening isn't just for adults. There are a few things kids love more than digging their hands into the earth, watching flowers bloom and spending some up close and personal time with creepy crawlies.
Take a look at your garden inventory. Are all your garden tools adult size and to dangerous for small inexperienced hands? Then create a kid zone of garden items, that your little ones can play with. Other kids something different than the latest doll or video game.
Kids tools sets, contain shovels, hoes, rakes, aprons, tote bags and gloves specially designed to fit and appeal to small children. They also make great gifts. They are safe and easy for them to use. Children with vivid imaginations and zest for life, will love items such as butterfly garden sets or building a birdhouse.
Get your kids outside away from the television. Let them use the hose or watering can to water plants, let them plant their own garden in a flowerpot but first taking them to the nursery and letting them pick out their own seeds or plants. Check out the soil and get a small bag of potting mix. Lastly let them choose a wonderful flowerpot that they can call their own.
If you want to get crafty you can let them paint a clay pot with acrylic paint and they can put their name on it or their favorite bug. Once they plant in it let them put it in their bedroom and teach them to become responsible for watering.
Basically kids just want to be with you doing something fun and exciting and playing with garden tools. Do your part.
