Gardening with kids

Get your kids involved in gardening..Keep your kids away from TV and video games...Learn the love of nature and get kids involved in Botany. Plants are a good way of encouraging children to be involved in science. Its a stepping stone to bigger and greater endeavours. Gardening is an excellent way of spending quality time together and learning also. Have fun planting a variety of seeds, like vegetables. This is a way of learning responsibilities of caring and nurturing the plants. They will have a greater respect for nature...Learn the concept of where food comes from and how. It doesn't magically appear in the stores...Plant a window box with seeds purchased by the child...The activities are countless....

A great site for children on the many mysteries of plants..Have fun learning..
