Help Your Child Start a Container Garden

Start by choosing several plant types and drawing a map of your future garden. Plant the seeds and teach your child how to maintain it. Make a checklist of responsibilities, including watering and trimming plants. At harvest time, prepare meals together with food from the garden. Finally, help your child make a scrapbook about the experience.
