Gardening is fun and educational for kids, and it has a great end result - food they can eat! If you have some space in the yard, give them their own little plot of land to care for. 

  • Take them to a garden center and let them choose the fruits and vegetables they want to plant. 
  • Help them decide where the seeds or plants should go. 
  • Have them tend their little garden by watering their plants and checking progress. 

Kids can harvest the fruits of their labor, and best of all, eat them!
