Playing in the Garden Dirt
Dirt is a great place to play, explore and learn. Garden dirt is even better than yard dirt because you can grow delicious vegetables to eat.
If you want to have a garden close at hand, try a garden in a pot. If you have a large box, bucket or pot, turn it into a "salad garden" and plant little vegetables like lettuce, radishes, carrots and a couple flowers just for fun!
Want to get started faster? How about picking a short vine from a philadendron plant and sticking it in a glass of water to watch it sprout roots?
Or you can stick the end of a potato or sweet potato into a little water in a glass or jar and watch it sprout both leaves and roots!
KidsGardening.com is a great place to get ideas and information about how to create your own backayrd garden...or even in a flower pot.
If you need a little help, ask your parents to help. Here's even a guide for them to use to help you get started: http://kidsgardening.com/primer.asp
