8 Garden Projects for Kids


- Outdoor Plant Tepee -

What you’ll need:

- Poles (bamboo or other light woods work well)
- Bean seeds or other climbing plants


- Create a small tepee, big enough for your child to sit inside, with sticks or bamboo poles crossing over each other.
- Plant bean seeds, or another climbing plant, at the base of the tepee and allow them to climb up the poles to create a secret room in the garden for your little ones to play in.

Variation: If you find creating a tepee big enough for your child to play in daunting, you can also have your child help you create a small tepee big enough for “fairies” or butterflies to live in.
