When school is out for summer, it’s not long before kids grow bored with hanging around the house. Give your children a fun gardening activity that will give them something to do all summer.
Container gardening is an easy way to set up a new garden for your little ones. One way to make the garden more kid-friendly (and really capture their interest) is to use old toys as the containers for the garden.
Go through your child’s toybox and take out any toys that are old or damaged. Playthings, like a dump truck, beach pail or an old wagon, can be filled with soil to create individual containers that carry on a toy theme. If you don’t have enough toys to use, buy plastic pots and have your kids paint the exteriors to personalize them for a summer kids garden..
