Tips for a a successful child's garden project:
~ keep the kid garden project simple but with relative fast result

~ grow something really tasty that the child likes, makes it so much more rewarding to go out in its own child garden to pick homegrown vegetables

~ set aside a designated "Child's Garden " area that is your kids very own space- it encourages responsibility and self respect

~ provide special
kid gardening tool kit or a beginner gardening kid set so that little hands can easily handle the gardening jobs safely ( a good pair of gardening gloves kid size should be standard in any gardening kid set tool- prevents lots of tears from cuts)
