Well hello spring!! We are all loving this amazing weather here in Colorado which totally has us itching for some gardening fun with the family. Since we live in Colorado we do have to be careful of our garden and not start planting seeds or plants too early because goodness knows we have had snow on Mother’s Day here! So, while we wait for that perfectly timed planting day (let me know if you know that day okay?!), we decided to start really educating Jude and Teagan about gardening by focusing on cleaning out and preparing our gardens. I must thank Tree Top for sponsoring this post and getting our kids excited to garden this summer!
To get your gardening fun off to a great start this spring I have a great giveaway that you must enter! Enter on the Rafflecopter below and win a gardening set worth $60.00!
The giveaway will be open from April 7, 2015 to May 15, 2015 at midnight PST and will be sponsored by Sway Group. Forty winners will be selected to receive a gardening set valued at $60. Sway Group will select the winners on or about May 18, 2015 and we will follow up with the prizewinners.

Our toddler loves to work in the garden with us! It is such a great learning activity. We'd love to make the milk carton bird feeder!
Amanda Love says
Our backyard is a mess so we haven't done any gardening and don't really intend to this year. We're also in the process of moving into a new home. Maybe next year we'll think about it. btw we love Tree Top products.
Mama to 5 says
What a nice family project. Especially great for children to help – teaches them so much.
Masshole Mommy says
That is a fun family project. Looks like you guys had fun!
My son would love this! I'll have to get home some of that apple sauce!
Maria Long says
WE just bought some plants for our veggie garden. Now I need to prep it as well. We love some MOtts here too.
Having your own Home Garden can save so much money each year . Its great because you know exactly what is going into your body and there is no need for pesticides
I love gardening with my kiddos! It's a family event every year to get our veggie garden in the ground and we enjoy family time together growing things that we get to eat together later! 🙂
Rebecca Bryant says
Wow your little ones were working hard. Can't wait to see how their garden grows.
Liz Mays says
That sounds like a such a fun time! The kids even got a nice treat.
It's fun to get the kids out there helping. I bet it's going to be a season of happy growing memories. 🙂
I would love to plant our first garden together as a family. I usually do a few vegetables and the kids help weed every once in a while. I think if we planned together it would be a great thing for the family.
This is such a wonderful lesson. I don't know the first thing about gardening (and there is LOTS to learn) but this sounds like a lot of fun to do as a family.

My kids love to be in the garden. We grow everything we can. But my 5 year old really just loves to dig.

Your family is adorable! So fun that you got the whole family together to get out there and enjoy the sun while gardening!

The milk carton watering can sounds like a cute project to make with the kids.

I can't wait to start planting now. I think I will go the nursery this afternoon.
I would like to plan our first garden.
Diana Trotter says
Ok there is an elephant watering can to win, I'm in!! I saw pink ones at the Philadelphia Flower Show a few years ago and had to take my picture with them!! Too funny about the pretty yellow flowers! I want to plant more but we're moving soon, will have to wait!

We love gardening! My 3 year old loves to help dig and plant.

The Easter Bunny just brought my two year old gardening gear for Easter!
Meghan @ PlaygroundParkbench says
We just started our seeds today – it was the first time, and my 3.5 yo and 20 month old were both completely involved and fascinated. Fingers crossed they grow!
Krystal Butherus says
I have always wanted to start my own backyard garden. This would be a great way to start.
Oh I would love to do the activity of 5 Plants with cool kid appeal!! We did a small container garden last year and he had so much fun helping me! I would love to do a few that would be just his this year! How fun!
