Book Giveaway: Gardening Projects For Kids

I received this book to review and I also got an extra copy for one of you to win. Woo hoo! I know summer is over but who cares. You can win this book and over the winter, plan all of the cool things you can do with a garden when planting season comes.

Before I got this book, my husband was the one who was more of a gardener. After I received this book, we went out to get supplies and started a garden of our own. We’re growing pumpkins, zucchini, green beans, corn, radishes, spinach, and basil. It’s all thanks to this book.

The authors have come up with the most amazing ideas such as making a pumpkin jungle, potato stamps, and creating fairy houses.

This book is packed with so many brilliant ideas. One of my favorites is planting specific gardens like a pizza or salad garden. The pizza garden is great because it shows the little hummingbird where some of the food is coming from.

Letting her go to the backyard to get some vegetables actually makes food more fascinating to her and drums up interest in the food we’re growing. Translation: She actually ate some fresh spinach…GASP!

Gardening Projects For Kids is full of endless possibilities for any kind of garden you can imagine.

There’s even a section on cooking tasks for every age and there are several other projects throughout the book like making lavender belly balm and using edible flowers for fancy and decorative ice cubes.

All you have to do is leave a comment telling me why you would like this book. If you’re like me and shy about leaving comments, let me know some of your favorite fruits and vegetables.

This contest is open to everyone and the winner will be picked by a random number generator. The contest will end on Thursday the 20th at 3 pm PST. Only one comment per person and I will announce the winner on Friday.

Good Luck!

*These views are my own and I wasn’t paid for this giveaway…blah, blah.

    I have a nearly two year old nephew who loves being outside doing projects and playing in the dirt. This may be a little advanced for him but it would be fun to have a guidebook of projects to do with him.

    Hi,

    I would love to have this book because I’d like to gift it to my sister who has two boys, ages 8 and 9. They have a garden, and this would be a great addition to their collection. Thanks!

    We used to garden, but now we go to the farm to get our veggies. However, I’d love to get back into it. And the kids, my boys (7 and 5) think it’s really cool to eat right off the plant. I’d love to plant a small garden for them to eat right out of!

    I would love to have this book because we planted a garden this Spring and my husband was completely OCD about it and wouldn’t really give myself or my 4 adorable children a chance to provide input.

    Our garden has yielded lots of impressive veggies and herbs as well as a massive crop of sunflowers. We grew radishes, squash, basil, sage, rosemary, 3 kinds of tomatoes, string beans, eggplant, radishes and lots of peppers. Sadly, we went on vacation last month and the garden went to hell and hasn’t recovered (maybe we just stopped caring?)

    I think this book would inspire my husband to give up control and let the children and I have fun with the garden again. I am emailing you a picture of one of my very impressive cucumbers. It would put a porn star to shame and proves how deserving I am…..

    I have promised myself, and my family, I’ll start a garden next spring. I have killed every house plant I’ve ever owned and have no idea how to garden. A book would be fab!

    We’re moving from a townhouse with no yard to a house with a big yard next month. This would be a great book to help introduce me and my toddler to gardening. She’s already infatuated with plants and loves to feel the different texture of leaves and flowers. Unfortunately, up until the move her only exposure has been at the park! I’m so excited for her to have a yard to play in, dig in, and explore.

    I would love to have this book because the creative ideas would be a welcome addition to our (currently small, raised bed) garden. My younger son (he’s 4) is destined to be either a chef or a ninja when he grows up, and he’s absolutely passionate about eating cherry tomatoes fresh off the vine. While he’s involved in the gardening, I’d really like to make it more creative and fun–something which will grab his imagination and keep him eating the freshest, healthiest food available to him for years to come.
