Winter project with the kids

The cold winter season is upon us. Depending on where you live, maybe more there than not right now. But, it's no time to forget about gardening because there's lots you can do indoors that's fun for both kids and grown-ups!

Kids Container GardeningIndoor Container Gardens are a great way to keep the green going in the dreary winter months and are a perfect activity for snow days and winter breaks. We're bringing you one here from Kids' Container Gardening, a choice pick from the Lloyd's children's book collection.

Succulent Gardens

cactiFirst off, what's a succulent? They are desert plants with fleshy leaves (think water-filled). They come in a variety of forms and include cacti (did you know, all cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti?) Cacti are a little trickier to plant, so if you choose some of those for your potted garden, be sure to have an adult or teenager around to assist because cacti prickles can hurt.
