Gardening Lab for Kids opens with the basics: kids and adults alike will learn the different plant parts, how to properly water plants, and how to choose the best plants for your geographic region. From there, families are ready to tackle any one of the awesome tutorials in this book. From theme gardening to green gardening, there is a project in Gardening Lab for Kids for both aspiring green thumbs and gardening experts.

One of the most enjoyable sections of Gardening Lab for Kids is the Garden Art section, where kids can take on tons of easy projects and beautify the backyard.  Whether they’re crafting the bottle cap windchimes or the DIY stepping stones, little ones are sure to love creating something special for their outdoor space. There is even a tutorial in this book for a garden fort, which will give kids the chance to have a space to call all their own in the backyard.

While there are plenty of fun activities and ideas in Gardening Lab for Kids, there are plenty of practical and eco-friendly projects, too. Kids can learn how to make a rain gauge to track the local weather patterns, how to make a bird feeder, and how to make a compost bin.  Kids can even learn how to grow their own food with the Mini Pizza Garden and Salsa Garden tutorials. Educational facts about plants and animals are scattered throughout the book, too, for an extra dose of learning.
