I have 3 children of various ages (12, 9, 2) so I make sure that whatever task they are given is fun and age appropriate.

They can help water or mix soil. Just let them know a healthy garden attracts the earthworms that boys usually like. ;)

My oldest son likes to pretend he is mining for diamonds.

WE read books about gardening then involve them at every step so take owner ship of the garden

I have four children ages 1 to 11 and we have had them all outside with us gardening since they were very young. They like the fact that they grew something themselves and they are more likely to eat it then as well. They each start seeds inside before we can get outside to plant and then they are eager to get out there and work. cwitherstine at zoominternet dot net

start at age 2!

Let them help count out seeds for the things planted in mounds.

We do container gardening - and I give each child a 16-20" pot to plant their own garden. Pizza gardens are a lot of fun and the kids love eating what they grew!

My kids love doing anything outside and all I have to do is tell them we're going to plant something for them to get excited and they LOVE watering the plants. My four and eight year olds love watching the plants grow. We water them every day together and check how much they've grown. We all love gardening!

Let the kids do simple tasks. It can be challenging.. my boys love digging or try to grab and touch plants. They also love using little wheelbarrows that they can move dirt or weeds for me :)

To have really cute gardening "tools", or to integrate games or learning into the task. :) I they have their own special portion of the garden that they get to raise they will be very excited to see the progress each week!

I buy them their own size of garden tools to help work in the garden.

One way to get children interested in the garden is allow them to fill up the water buckets with the hose and have them water large plants that wont break easily.

savannah said...

I got my kids little watering cans I let them help water my flowers. Last year my 4 year old pick all my marigolds and gave them too me ..... It was a bitter sweet gift ;) After that I started to teach him about gardening, we didn't have any more incidents after that

my grandkids loves to dig and plant the seeds. So when it comes up I tell them this is your garden and they water it too.

I think the key is to let them prepare and eat what they grow. To see it from seeds to delicious meals. They can help plant the seeds and water and weed. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

Candie L said...

They get to play with the bugs. Thank you

My children love to dig in the dirt and help in the garden. They have child rakes, hoes, and shovels to help. Plus they love to plant seeds, water them and watch them grow. I always tell them what a great job they have done. Thanks for the chance.

My daughter doesn't need any coaxing! She loves to play in the dirt, use the tools, and water the plants. Getting a child their own garden tools and watering can might help get them interested if they are reluctant.
