11 DIY children’s garden ideas to help your kids grow.

When you head to the yard for Lawn and Garden Month, take your kids with you. It’s the perfect time for them to reap all those mental and physical rewards of being outside.
Create a brave new world
1. Fairy house – Help your kids make a miniature world fit for fairies and other imaginary creatures. The base of a tree or a stump is an ideal site to add a tiny stone path, small plants and whatever else their imagination conjures up.
Eat it up
4. Food scrap garden – Lots of edible plants can be started from kitchen scraps. The base of store-bought celery only needs to be partially submerged in water to start a new stalk. Sweet potatoes, avocados, carrots and more can also be started from scraps. You’ll be wasting less and eating healthier in no time.
Do it together
7. Seed markers – We love this garden DIY project for kids because it’s appropriate for all ages. Give younger ones some rocks and paint, and let them go to town with designs of their own. If you have older garden helpers, some popsicle sticks and glue become labels to mark every herb, flower and tree you have in your yard.
