Garden Variety

From: Tip Junkie

Why We Love It: Kids love to get their hands dirty, and gardening is an activity where dirt is a must. Plus, it teaches kids a valuable lesson about the connection between the Earth and the food they eat (or the flowers they see). If you live in a city, you can create small container gardens for your windows or deck.

What You'll Need: Seeds, small gardening tools, an outdoor space in which to plant and/or a container for growing indoors, on a windowsill or on your deck.

How to Do It: Plant seeds that are particularly interesting, like large sunflowers or gourds and pumpkins, or something that the kids can actually eat. Other great plants for kids include: potatoes, radishes, sugar snap peas, cherry tomatoes, strawberries and corn. To incorporate some extra fun, plant your sunflower seeds in a circle or a square to create a "sunflower fort," or plant your radishes in the shapes of letters. The possibilities are endless!
