Gardening for children is fun and rewarding and very easy.


  • Little pots Possibly do outdoors.
  • Soil Water


  1. Put gloves on to put soil in containers.
  2. Seeds of grass or a flower. To put into soil.
  3. Water and wait. It’s always exciting seeing a seedling sprout through. Accomplishment and reward. This can lead to the garden with vegetables and flowers. A small container and seed is a great place to start.

Notes... Few days for results.

  • Thanks, a handy reminder that kids Lke to garden.


  • yeah right.. my son loves to do gardening. he gets rewards too for them. lol. so much fun.


  • These little plants are so cute they will be lovely to have in my garden


  • Fantastic to see excited they get when the seeds opt through and start to grow


  • I remember doing similar projects when I was in primary school. Old stockings with dirt and grass seed inside. So much fun giving it ‘hair’ cuts


  • Those pots are so cute! I’ve done grass heads with my kids before but the dog kept running off with the stockings and spreading the seeds all over the garden. But pots would be a better idea


  • I love doing little plants with the kids and think it is a great way to teach them to look after something


  • Its good to plant different things that each take a different amount of time to sprout so that there is always something happening rather than a long waiting game. So fabulous to get kids out in nature and not be afraid to get a bit dirty. The feeling of dirt and mud on the hands is a wonderful sensory experience.


  • We’ve grown a grass head recently and it was lots of fun to watch it sprout so quickly!


  • My daughter has just taken a real interest in gardening. Such simple ideas, budget friendly and provides her with so much enjoyment…she loves watering her plants and watching them grow.


  • Yes, grass pots are amazing. When my daughter was young, we used to do this too.


  • Excellent little activity for the kids


  • Lovely little idea and lots of fun.
