One of the best things about gardening with kids is the amazingly creative educational connections that can be made. I’m not sure what is happening where you live, but where we live right now the kids are out of school…and they have been for months now. So, while we are following along with the teacher’s online assignments I know the importance of making education hands-on for kids. Which is why I love gardening with kids.
These super cute vegetable garden markers are a fun, creative project for kids. I’ve gathered together a collection of inspiring garden vegetable ideas. I’m sure you will find one that your kids will love to make.
The first step is building your vegetable garden. We share some really delicious vegetable garden ideas – you’ll find some of our favourites in our How to Make a Home Garden with Kids article.
Once you have your vegetables picked out, it is time to get creative.
