5 Fun Kid-Friendly Garden Projects

CortneyMay 25, 2020

The countdown to Summer is on! School is wrapping up, the official start of Summer is less than a month away and we are itching to get outdoors. One of the things I’m most excited about this Summer is working on our garden at our new home. I’m especially excited for getting the kids involved with these fun kid-friendly garden projects!

The best part of these activities? You don’t have to have a huge garden to make them happen! Start small, no matter what size yard you have, and watch the memories unfold.

1. I wanted my little ones to really feel included in all the fun! I ordered some kid sized garden tools. I love this set and this set. Having some safe and kid appropriate tools lets them get in on all the fun or just play make believe around the house!

2. If you have a large garden, just a small area in your flower bed or even some potted plants indoors – these DIY painted rock tutorials are sure to provide entertainment for your kids + an adorable outcome! With over 15 fun options to choose from, you can have hours of fun!

3. If you don’t have room for a full garden, these 7 Fun Container Garden Projects are great for indoors! Most just need a sunny spot on a window sill to survive. My personal favorite? The garden bed in the toy truck! It would be adorable in a little boy’s room after it’s complete.

4. If DIY isn’t your thing, this all inclusive garden kit is for you! The ‘Dan&Darci Paint + Plant Flower Kit‘ has everything you need for an afternoon of fun. Grow your own beautiful flowers in a decorate-it-yourself tub. Plus, all the tools you need to continue to help them flourish.

5. If you want to keep the kids involved, but worried they might do more trampling than helping – set them up with their own spot! Grab a large pot and some soil. Give them a few extra flowers and then let them create their very own fairy garden or dinosaur land. Pull out some old toys you already have or head to the dollar store for some budget friendly finds! This blog post also has some great ideas on what to put in their little land.
