Gardening with children

We think it's important for young kids to get outside, play in the dirt, and breathe some fresh air. It's been proven to help with all sorts of things, including obesity and attention disorders (for anyone really interested in the subject, check out the book Last Child in the Woods).

We're very happy that Seleighna, our three-year-old next door neighbor loves coming and hanging out in the garden. Every morning she comes to check on her princess, take care of the rabbits, and play in the garden. At the library I've picked up a couple of books with gardening activities for children. I think we're going to put together a little two foot by two foot bed for her to plant some flowers and vegetables in, and maybe work with some of the other activities. They're really cute books, and seem to have activities even adults may enjoy.
