Our kids love to play outside. Now that spring is finally here to stay, we’ve been outside a lot. Maggie helped my mom garden a lot last year & constantly asks when we can start this year’s garden. I figured it would be fun to have a little garden party at our house this week to “practice” gardening before we plant our big vegetable garden next month. This party was so easy & the kids loved it. Having a party outdoors is my favorite. Here’s a look at our fun afternoon Garden Party:
The kids enjoyed taking some time to sit down at the picnic table & “Build-a-Bouquet”. This awesome toy from Green Toys is a big hit in our house. Now that Maggie doesn’t nap, we use this during “quiet time”. There are endless combinations of flowers to create (with 44 pieces), so each day you can build a new garden. It was also fun to take outside for our little party. The Build-a-Boutquets (and all Green Toys) are made in the USA from 100% recycled plastic milk jugs. Green Toys are environmentally friendly toys that are safe for kids.
I had intentions of them painting the flower pots too but our kids were too excited about the dirt & worms, so we skipped the paint. You could have your little gardeners paint the pots, play while they dry & then plant the seeds. Our kids had such a fun afternoon outside: gardening & getting very dirty!
