Gardening with kids

One thing EVERY child should experience is a bit of planting. Make some super duper easy newspaper “Pots” and get the kids to write their own labels (a great way to sneak in some writing practice for sure!). Even if you never ever manage to grow and fruit or vegetables.. the process itself will be great for the kids to see and follow! You could also add a Craft Stick Craft and create craft stick plant markers!
