If your kids want to help you in the garden, you might want to try this fun experiment with them. Let them create their own miniature greenhouse out of a plastic glove. Simply stuff each finger and the thumb of the glove with a wet cotton ball and a seed. Find 5 different seeds so the kids can see how growing them varies.
Follow along with these suggestions from Stacy posted on The Full Circle Gardener to help your kids make their own Garden in a Glove.
