If your kids are anything like our kids, then they have amounts of energy that know no bounds. It can be challenging to find ways to channel that energy productively and in ways that don’t lead to the destruction of your home. After much research and experimentation, we have found one of the best ways to utilize your kid’s energy while getting some help in the backyard!
Here are some of the best ways to incorporate your kids into your garden and yard!
Install Raised Garden Beds
Garden beds are great for so many reasons. They’re positioned off the floor, so it’s far less taxing on your knees and back, but they also allow you to segment your planting. This is great for keeping all of your fruits and veggies in order, but it’s also helpful if you want to get your kids involved.
Let your kid pick a box for themself and allow them to select what they want to grow. This box will then become their responsibility, and not only will they have a way to channel their energy, but they’ll learn about accountability, chores and will be persuaded to eat more veggies if they grow them on their own!
Purchase Gardening Tools For Them
To make gardening a little bit easier for them and even more exciting, get gardening tools just for them! Plenty of brands make children-sized tools that will fit their smaller hands a little bit better, and allowing them to pick out the color or pattern of the tool will get them even more excited for the process.
Involving your kids in your everyday gardening and lawn care is a great way to keep them occupied while teaching them so much about responsibility! If you have questions about the best way to care for your outdoor space, give us a call at (800) 903-1460.
