Little egg carton gardens!

I usually write about art projects, but today I want to share my favorite activity that we have done this school year, and it's a gardening project. To me gardening is an art. There are lots of different elements that go into a garden, but just like art, the most important part of gardening is the process! We learn so much through the process and every season our garden gets a little better!

We live in San Diego where it's always a good time to grow food. Things that typically grow only in the spring and summer in other climates grow year-round here. If you are looking for a fun, easy and valuable activity for your kids to do here it is! Little egg carton gardens!

We planted these tiny gardens a few weeks ago and are still watching them grow. The best part about this activity is that it is ongoing and requires continued care and monitoring. Kids will learn about the life cycle of a plant during the process.
