SPRING IS HERE! Finally Spring has decided to show up in the Midwest. I tend to go a little crazy this time of year doing projects outside. I am just so sick of Winter and love being outside in this nice weather. We spent pretty much the entire weekend getting things ready for planting season. We are going to really give a garden a go this year and try to grow our own food.
One of the things I have been wanting to grow is Strawberries, and I am sick of waiting so I thought if we made some DIY Strawberry Planters we could just bring in our plants if we get another cold snap. I also wanted to use some of my cans I have been collecting and thought they would make great hanging planters. Another great way to reuse some of our waste (and it saves money too!).
My little one really LOVED the painting part of this project, her favorite part was doing the polka dots. My older one is starting to take our projects a little more serious and wanting to make things look pretty so she is taking her time now and really trying to do thing the right way (instead of her way, which is not always the right way). She also helped her sister with the planting, it is so cute to watch them together.
Stop by and check out some of our other Gardening Projects for the kids!
Have you started planting or getting ready to plant a garden this year yet?
UPDATE: We got to pick and eat some Strawberries today! My little one kept asking for more so I sure hope they keep growing!
