Help children cultivate their gardens--and grow beautifully along with them. These 40 rewarding projects take youngsters away from the TV and out into the fresh air, to channel youthful energies in exciting new ways. And parents share in the fun, too--whether it's helping to grow an herb garden in a box or making a mosaic sundial. Introduce budding gardeners to the satisfaction of planting and harvesting their own vegetables and flowers, the creative challenge of carving gourds, and the scientific experience of building a weather station, as well as the opportunity to explore the wonders of nature, right in their own backyards.
