15 Kids Garden Crafts

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 relaxing and a great stress reliever.  I’ve had gardening on my mind and I will have my grand kids 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.
