Gardening Lab for Kids Review
Gifted by: Quarry Books
Reviewed by Emily Timmons, Editor of AllFreeKidsCrafts.com
We say time and time again how important it is in the digital era to get children outside, and no book has better ideas for outdoor learning and play than Gardening Lab for Kids. Filled with 52 brilliant and fun experiments and activities, Gardening Lab for Kids goes far above a basic gardening book; it’s the perfect guide to having fun as a family, recreating your favorite outdoor space, and teaching kids valuable skills they can use for the rest of their lives.
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. Families can learn how to make a butterfly garden, a fairy garden, or even a garden that’s perfect for young sports enthusiasts.
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.
From beginner gardening experiments to gorgeous garden designs, Gardening Lab for Kids is simply the best guide for children of all ages and families of all experience levels to truly enjoy their outdoor space in an unforgettable way.
