Fun Kid’s Gardening Projects -Doing kid's gardening projects doesn’t need big yard. You may live in an apartment and don’t worry, there are various ways that you can try to get your kids into nature. Here are some ideas to develop your child's green thumb -based on the original article written by Amy Hatch at ivillage.com.

Do you keep several pairs of used little boots that your kid can’t wear anymore? Try this project as it would be fun. Besides several pairs of rainboots (all sizes and colors), you’ll need soil and seeds, a drill, nails or hooks.

What to do:
-Drill holes in the sole of each boot for water drainage and in the top of the boot for hanging.
-Fill up boots with soil, plant seeds or plants as said by instructions.
-Hang boots as desired using a nail or a hook on a fence or wall.
Besides hanging the boots, you may put together the boots on the ground as a group of colorful planters.

2.Fairy Garden from Finding Home: for preschool and up.

I think every little girl and boy loves fairies. Ask your kids to create a home for the fairies; they are surely excited. 

Needed things: a large container, small rocks, small plants, moss, and tiny furniture (created by you and your kids or purchased).

What to do:
-Fill the container with soil and let your kid’s imaginations flow.
-Your kid may create a map before or just design as you go.
-Small plants like shrubs, flowers and other plants need regularly trimming to keep their desired figures.
-Remember not to combine sun and shade plants.
