Here’s a fun project to do with the kids this spring, with a few simple supplies here’s How to Make a Mini Kids Garden:
You will need:
- Small pots
- Selection of seeds, fast growing ones and edible seeds are good for kids, e.g. cress, rocket
#1. Give each child a small pot
Have them fill it ¾ full with compost.
#2. Plant some seeds in each pot
Plant the seeds in each post cover with some compost. Check seed instructions for depth of seeds.
#3. Water the seeds
Lightly water the pots and place e.g. on a window sill
#4. Check each Day
Have your child check the pot each day to see if the plants have appeared
#5. Measure to see how quickly plants grow
Once plants have appeared, you could mark down measurements each day to see how quickly plants grow.
#6. Harvest and enjoy!
Let them harvest when ready if using edible seeds and help make e.g. a salad or egg sandwich with cress.
