Gardening is a fantastic way to get your children to play outside and learn about nature, plants, wildlife, weather and eating healthy. Allowing your child to look after their own plants can also help to boost their confidence and encourage responsibility.
There is no doubt about it that when it comes to playing outside children love to play in the dirt. This can be a great way to introduce children to gardening by encouraging them to help you dig holes for the plants. Another great way to encourage children is to give them their own gardening tools.
