how to create a kids garden

Spring is for playing outside and planting flowers. That's why over the weekend we took advantage of the 80 degree temps and had a gardening day with my son. Like most things with little boys, it was so fun but extremely dirty! Good thing I always have PURELL® Hand Sanitizing Wipes at the ready to clean up those tiny little hands of his.

We are in the I Can Do Everything By Myself stage, so instead of letting him help plant flowers in our garden I decided it's best if he has his very own.

Supplies needed for children's garden:
PURELL® Hand Sanitizing Wipes (Found in most Walmart stores in the household cleaning aisle)
Potting Soil
Small planting pots
Sticks (to write names of plants)

Since this is my son's garden, I just guided him to make sure he adds the soil first, the seeds and then a little water. Simple as that! Remember to let them get dirty - that's the best part.  
When the planting and fun is over, I need to clean him up quickly. As much as I love that my little guy enjoys being outside and playing in the dirt over any electronics I still don't want him to be a complete mess. He needs to be mostly dirt free when it's time to come inside the house. I don't want dirty little fingerprints trailing through the house.


That's why my family uses PURELL® Hand Sanitizing Wipes - safe to clean up hands and face quickly. These convenient canisters are available in 35-count and 70-count and proven to reduce the transmission of germs in the household.

  2. My daughter loves to help in the big garden. I bet she'd really love her own little container garden. Thanks for the idea!

  3. Teaching your son about producing food is really great. Our kids are older, they like to eat the produce, sometimes right off the plant, but since they have a social life it is up to mom and dad to pull the weeds! LOL

  4. This is such a great post! :)

    Thanks for joining the Link Up this week!

  6. My kids love to garden too, I think wipes need to be a part of every garden project. #client

  7. Awww, my kids enjoy gardening too! Now that my oldest two are 9 & 7 they can accomplish a lot of gardening on their own. I just need to remember to get some extra seeds for them. Isn't harvesting the best part? They're just so proud!

  8. We can't wait to get back out in the dirt around here soon. Thank you for linking up at #MeetUpMonday with thequinntessentialmommy.com (and me, but I missed it this week)!
