A Fun Way To Interest A Kid Into Gardening

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.
Both me and my husband loves gardening. In fact, two weeks ago he converted our dog kennel into a greenhouse where he can put his hydroponic plants in it. Right now, he's only have 6 tomatoes growing in there and still planning on building more hydroponic systems for more vegetables that we can eat all year long. As much as we love gardening, we want our two boys to love it as well. Gardening is not only an educational hobby but as well as a very productive one. We have been trying to get our 7-year old interested in gardening. Sometimes he gets interested but after a while he would not care for his plants anymore, so we always ended up taking care of them.

We might have to try a different approach to get him interested in it. I found these fun garden projects to try out from The Gro Project like the Toyarium, Ukulele Garden, Origami Garden, G.Y.O.B. or Thrown Down. The easiest and most fun for a 7-year old would be the Toyarium. To make this project, all you need is a fishbowl or other glass container, your favorite succulents and cactus (we will probably use a venus fly trap on this one since we already have one here at home). You will also need Miracle-Gro potting mix, make sure that it is the Moisture Control since it is gonna be inside a container. Other Miracle-Gro product available for indoor/container gardening is Shake 'n Feed Moisture Control All Purpose Plant Food. For In-ground gardening, you can try the LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit.

Back to the materials needed for this project, you will also need any plastic toys or figurines from your kids room, some rocks and lastly a spoon! For the step by step instructions on how to make it, you can click the highlighted "The Gro-Project" above. This will take you to Miracle-Gro's facebook page and you will also see the instructions for the other projects!

Anyhow, if you have your own project that you want to share, you can share them on Miracle-Gro's facebook page and you can also follow their page on Pinterest to check out as a forum for gardeners to come together and share gardening stories! You can also watch this short video enbedded below..
