The Book of Gardening Projects for Kids: 101 Ways to Get Kids Outside, Dirty, and Having Fun
"What better way to begin to explore the natural world than to experience the magic and beauty of a family garden." --Arden Bucklin-Sporer, author of How to Grow a School Garden
In The Book of Gardening Projects for Kids, Whitney Cohen and John Fisher draw on years of experience in the Life Lab Garden Classroom and gardening with their own children to teach parents how to integrate the garden into their family life, no matter its scope or scale. The book features simple, practical gardening advice, including how to design a play-friendly garden, ideas for fun-filled theme gardens, and how to cook and preserve the garden's bounty. 101 engaging, family-friendly garden activities are also featured, from making Crunch-n-Munch Vegetable Beds and Muddy Miniature Masterpieces to harvesting berries for Fresh Fruity Pops.
