For Eben’s 5th birthday, we planted a pizza garden. (Gosh, he was so little) This is a super fun activity for children and will cultivate their love for gardening. It is perfect for both young and older children.
At the time we lived in the woods in Georgia and didn’t have a garden established so we planted the pizza garden in containers on our patio. We planted several different types of tomatoes,onions, peppers, basil and oregano. Eben’s favorite part was planting the plants and then watering them each morning. It was fun to watch the plants grow and watch his excitement grow. The best part was harvesting the veggies and making our own pizzas from scratch. This was a great gift for Eben because he is now 8 and loves to garden. It has blossomed into a hobby that he really enjoys and looks forward to.
Would you plant a pizza garden?
Send me your gardening pics, I would love to share them with everyone.
How cool…..I have always had a garden and my children are continueing it on…hopefully my grandsons will as well when they move out…..I have changed from traditional to balcony as I no longer live in a house but a 2nd story apartment…I use the topsy turvy planters to utilize all space while providing a sun shade as well !!!
It is a super fun to get the children involved in gardening and a love for our Earth.
