8 Garden Projects for Kids

Involving children in fun gardening activities provides valuable opportunities to enjoy the spring and summer weather while helping to instill a love of nature in your little ones.

The magic of watching a seed grow that they planted themselves, or the joy of creating a beautiful picture from leaves and petals is a feeling they are unlikely to forget.

These garden activities* are appropriate for young children with adult supervision, or older children looking for a bit of a challenge.

I have also included a number of tips and creative variations to help you work with your child’s needs and changing interests. The directions are written as if you were doing the activity on your own, but it should be easy to understand where to include your children, depending on their age and level of ability.

So have fun!

*We would like to thank the New Zealand WWOOFer who suggested these activities to us last year. You’ll always be a Star in our eyes.
