Garden Crafts For Kids

Children can use these crafts to bring a little fun into the garden.  Whether you have a farm or a small container garden to work with it’s important for children to experience the joy of keeping care of plants. We recommend starting an indoor herb garden near the windowsill, and encouraging children to be in charge of watering and tending to their care. Our garden crafts can go alongside key gardening ideas, such as composting, fertilization, spacing, and plant knowledge in general. If you’d like your child to keep a journal, check out our free Garden Lapbook on our sister site.
