If your kids are feeling to itch to get their hands dirty but it isn’t quite time to plant the flowers outside yet, let them make a toy garden instead! You’ll need some dirt, so grab some from outside from the yard or a flower pot.

Once you’ve got your dirt ready and spread out in a container just grab some random items and a few toys for your kids and let their imagination take over!

My kids did this today and they had a lot of fun creating and interacting with each other — they didn’t know it but I was listening in and was very entertained by the conversations about what all the toys were doing in the garden!
