Container Gardening with Kids

Gardening is a great summer long activity for kids.  If you don’t have a yard, a nearby community garden, or don’t want the kids digging up your lawn, let them garden in containers. 

It’s easy and inexpensive.  All it takes is some potting soil and seed packets from the garden shop.  You can use containers you already have, just remember to drill holes in the bottom for drainage. 

Container gardens can be taken indoors when the weather gets cold for year round gardening fun.  Here are some creative ideas to help you start your own container garden.
