Montessori Kids: Gardening Ideas for Spring

Each morning I hear more birds starting to chirp, the sun feels warmer, and my dogs want to go outside more - cautiously checking each time to see if the 18+ inches of snow sitting in our yard has disappeared. These subtle signs have me thinking about all the possibilities that there are outside once spring is here for us. And, I know for many of you, the time to start your outdoor gardens is now!

I'm making a much more concerted effort to make that a reality. So, here are some ideas for gardening this spring I have been inspired by lately: 

Hopefully you find some inspiration here! And, I hope your real spring comes faster than mine is sure to come!

Kids learn so much from being outside gardening. These easy Montessori activities will make gardening with kids fun and easy this spring.
