Gardening with kids is a great way to cultivate the love of science and nature.  Let them get involved!  Whether you get a small gardening kit or allow them to have a small patch of your garden to be in charge of, you will be amazed how they take interest in it!  Add this to your summer list this year!

  • Let them help choose plants or flowers to grow.
  • Guide them to plants that will provide different colors.
  • Help them to understands that certain plants will attract specific insects such as butterflies or bumblebees.
  • Create a schedule for watering, feeding and the growth process.
  • Let them add a bird feeder or toad house in their garden so they can see how they are helping nature.
