After such long winters in Northern Michigan, one of my favorite things to do in spring is to get outside in my garden. My mom and dad instilled a love of gardening in me as a child. I’ll be honest I hated those days of planting and weeding but eventually somewhere along the way I learned to love gardening. I even find weeding garden beds relaxing and a great stress reliever. I’ve had gardening on my mind and I will have my grandkids coming home the first week of July and thought it might be fun to do a project or two with them. I’ve rounded up 15 Kids Garden Crafts. Now I just need to decide which one I’d like to do. I’ve included some easier ones for small children and some harder ones for those older kids.
