Gardening Projects for Children

  • Make a Mini Greenhouse
    As gardeners, what is happening with the weather is very important to us, because it can affect the plants we grow. If we know that bad weather is expected - a frost or high winds for example, we can take steps to protect some of our more tender plants. It is easy to make a barometer of your own to help forecast the weather - you might even be better at it than the weather bureau!

  • Make Your Own Barometer
    Do you like tomatoes? They’re great for making lots of foods kids like, such as pizza, salsa and tomato sauce. Now is the time for getting your tomato seedlings started if you want to be harvesting lots of tomatoes as soon as possible. Tomato seeds need warmth and moisture to germinate. To get a head start, you can plant your tomato seeds in little mini hothouses and then transplant them into the garden when the weather is a bit warmer. Home grown tomatoes taste SO good!!
