My dad introduced me to gardening at an early age. He could grow just about anything! His specialty? Tomatoes! I remember going out and picking fresh fruits and vegetables to eat on a regular basis. I’m so glad I have those memories to hold on to. To this day, he still keeps up a pretty amazing garden. When we visit each spring, my kids and I look forward to seeing what new things “Papa” has growing in his garden. He gives us a tour of his garden. His garden seems to get bigger with every visit as he experiments with new plants! My dad passed his green thumb on to me and I like to teach and encourage my own children about the benefits of gardening. We try to grow our own little plants every spring season. My kids really enjoyed watching their sunflowers grow when we lived in South Carolina. We even had a little container garden going on our back porch with herbs and spices!
Gardening for kids can be really fun. To encourage and inspire your own kids to start and take care of their own little garden, I’ve compiled a list of helpful list of gardening tools at Amazon to get you started. Kids are sure to enjoy getting out this spring and taking care of something they can call their own! It’s fun to take care of plants and tend to them regularly while watching them grow.
