Ive had a special raised bed made out of a side of a swimming pool for the kids to dig in their own area. I could not let them did in my area as they would pull all the plants out especially after caring them for so long. I made their garden raised, put their garden tools in and now they enjoy digging in their patch of the garden while they leave mine alone. Ive even given them seeds to plant and water.

  • My kids also have a section of the garden that’s all theirs.


  • I have an old bath tub which I am going to make into a garden bed for my daughter


  • There is nothing more rewarding for a child that has so much interest in planting a handful of seeds & watching them grow. Our granddaughter comes here weekly & goes straight out the back to her garden to check it out!


  • That’s a great idea. I’m sure they will enjoy it and have fun while learning. How proud will they be if they manage to grow something they can eat or put in a vase!


  • We did a similar thing for our 4 year old hubby made some flower beds out of tin and made one just for him as we found out the hard way yep he dug all our seeds up one year :(


  • My sons loves to mow the grass with my hubby he copy’s him and even helps with the fire wood and his 3
