Spring is for playing outside and planting flowers. That’s why over the weekend we took advantage of the 80 degree temps and had a gardening day with my son. Like most things with little boys, it was so fun but extremely dirty! Good thing I always have PURELL® Hand Sanitizing Wipes at the ready to clean up those tiny little hands of his.
We are in the I Can Do Everything By Myself stage, so instead of letting him help plant flowers in our garden I decided it’s best if he has his very own.
Supplies needed for children’s garden:
Small planting pots
Sticks (to write names of plants)
Since this is my son’s garden, I just guided him to make sure he adds the soil first, the seeds and then a little water. Simple as that! Remember to let them get dirty – that’s the best part.
When the planting and fun is over, I need to clean him up quickly. As much as I love that my little guy enjoys being outside and playing in the dirt over any electronics I still don’t want him to be a complete mess. He needs to be mostly dirt free when it’s time to come inside the house. I don’t want dirty little fingerprints trailing through the house.
