Spring is in full bloom and we’re excited about being outdoors more and teaching the kids simple planting and gardening skills. An easy way to do this is by planting seedlings or small sturdy plants that are easy to care for like succulents or cacti. We’ve rounded up some fun ideas on how to show off your kids’ planting skills. Recycle old cartons, use toys like LEGO or dinosaurs, learn how to macramé, or paint old jars. These adorable ideas are guaranteed to get a green thumbs up from the kids.
