Interested in Gardening with Kids?

Here are suggestions for books and projects to encourage preschoolers and older children to enjoy gardening and the beauty of nature.

Gardening with children, from toddlers, to pre-schoolers, to teens, to young adults, opens new windows in a world dominated by technology.

Instead of turning on the television, or the ipad, encourage them to broaden their horizons by finding enjoyment and satisfaction in gardening!

Teaching children about the living soil and the beauty of God's amazing creation is just such a wholesome, therapeutic activity.







Young children will be more apt to be inspired with gardening if they are able to use age and size apporpriate garden tools!

Outdoor gardening with children is a real joy, not just for the children, but also for the parents, grandparents or teacher!


Planting a Garden with Children

Allowing young children to play outdoors with dirt, sand and water, and introducing them to bugs, worms and sprouted seeds and eventually helping them grow their own plants will help build a life-long love of gardening and a healthy respect for the earth.

In addition to gardening skills, kids and adults learn patience through gardening.

We have to wait for the seeds to germinate, the plants to grow, and then wait for the harvest time! In a world of "instant answers and results", gardening is a great way to learn patience!

Gardening also teaches responsibility and time management. Plants are living things, and their needs of moisture, weeding, fertilizing, etc. need to be met in order for them to flourish.

Balancing time and responsibility with the needs of a growing garden is a great way to practice.
