  • Planting ideas for your kids

    Gardening with your kids could be a fun activity for the whole family. Are you looking for something to do on a boring day with your kids? How about something that is fun and educational instead of TV or videogames? Well, look no further!

    Planting can be a great activity for your kids because:

    – It’s fun
    – It’s educational
    – It teaches them basic biology
    – It also teaches kids about responsibility

    It can be a great way to show your kids how to be responsible. They have to water and care for the seedlings if they want them to grow. If they are neglected they will not grow. So use this as an opportunity to show them how to be responsible.

    A great media for kids to plant in are egg cartons. They are simple, cheap, and make less mess. Grab some potting soil, and some egg cartons, and our seeds of choice. You could successfully plant an egg carton herb garden. Using the egg cartons is as simple as filling them with soil, planting the seeds in each spot of the carton, and watering them.

    One other great way for kids to grow things are socks. Have your child put on old pair of socks over their shoes. Next have them walk around a grassy area, or with a lot of plants. Then take a show box, and line it with a plastic bag, put the socks in the show box, fill it with soil, and water it. Socks are great at picking up seeds. Plants drop seeds everywhere. This could be an interesting experiment to see want kind of seeds you can find. Planting is a rewarding activity for children as well. They get to see something that they cared for, grow, and bloom.

    So what are you waiting for? Grab some seeds, and get planting people!
