Nothing beats playing in the dirt with your kids. Disney FamilyFun magazine shared some green gardening ideas that bring both city and country kids outside to learn about the earth, and have some fun.
Savvy moms know that gardening'??s not just for grown-ups. Here are some gardening craft projects to inspire a young gardener.
The Stepping Stone Path: This stepping-stone path offers a concrete method of preserving your most precious garden harvest: happy memories.
Create a Gourd Birdhouse:Gourds prove that nature has a sense of humor: their wild markings, eye-popping colors, and space-alien shapes transform the late-summer garden into a natural amusement park. If you've considered growing gourds but wondered what in the world to do with them, this project will answer your question--and please the birds in the process.
Make Your Version of the Very Hungry Caterpillar:This soddy creature makes a fun first-time gardening project while bringing a little bit of spring into your home.
Open a "Ladybug Inn":One way for your kids to get acquainted with the industrious ladybug is to gather a few from your garden and put them up indoors for a couple of days in a see-through ladybug inn.
And apartment dwellers don't have to miss out. Create a Door Step Garden: Turn an old boot into a stylish planter.
