benefits of gardening with kids

Why Gardening With Kids?

Gardening with kids is a fun and educational activity that can benefit both children and adults. As a parent, I have found that gardening is a great way to spend quality time with my kids while teaching them important life skills. Not only does it promote physical activity and healthy eating habits, but it also helps children develop a sense of responsibility and respect for the environment.

One activity that has been particularly effective to teach my kids responsibility is gardening. Gardening with kids not only teaches them about nature but also helps them develop a sense of responsibility and pride in their work.

When choosing plants for your garden, it’s important to consider your climate, the amount of sunlight your garden receives, and the soil type. Some plants, like tomatoes, require a lot of sunlight and well-draining soil to thrive. Other plants, like herbs, can tolerate partial shade and can be grown in containers.

I highly recommend gardening with kids as a fun and educational activity that promotes a love for nature and a sense of responsibility for the environment. Whether you have a small balcony or a large backyard, there are many ways to get started and make gardening a part of your family’s routine.

April Showers Bring May Flowers Party

When I first saw this cute April Showers Bring May Flowers party in Bird’s Party magazine, I knew I HAD to feature it here as I had so much to say about the creative details that Suzanne of Fanciful Events included! 

First of all….the overall theme is carried through to every single detail beautifully!  From the oversized rainbow umbrella chandelier to the sweets and that cake….wow…that cake is FABULOUS!

The details are just so well thought out and the best thing is that all the ideas here are very doable and attainable.  I love that!  She repurposed rain boots to hold sweets and umbrella favors and created a cute focal point on the table with raincoat & tutu!  Brilliant! My personal favorite creative touch happens to be the WOW-FACTOR–those window panes as the sweets bar backdrop is just PHENOMENAL!

One of Suzanne’s signature touches is to match her daughter’s oufit to the theme of the party which is just adorable and I look forward to seeing how she does this every time!  She didn’t disappoint here…How cute is that rainbow dress and headband!
