With Earth Day right around the corner, it’s time to get the spring garden in order and of course, the kids want to help. What’s better than digging in dirt, making mud and putting seeds in the ground?! So while you’re getting knee-deep in dirt and bugs, let the kids have their own fun too with gardening with these fun picks that will get them asking questions about why it’s good to plant your own veggies and fruits and how it helps the earth in the long run.
