One of the most entertaining ways to spend time with kids is by gardening together. I love that gardening is something fun, helpful, and educational we can do together. Not only does gardening produce something valuable, but it teaches my kids real life skills they can use for years to come. If you're a prepper, survivalist, or just a parent who wants their kids to learn valuable real-life skills, why not try gardening together? Here are some fantastic ideas you can use to garden with your kids: no special skills required!

1. Thumbprint art painted flower pots

Remember that no matter how long you've been gardening for, gardening with kids is its own experience. Maybe your kids will love gardening and maybe they'll hate it, but try to focus on the fact that this offers you a great chance to spend time together and get to know your kids in a new situation. Furthermore, gardening will help your kids learn determination and planning. No matter what projects you work on together, they'll be able to see that hard work really does pay off.
