Though the weather may not show it, spring is just around the corner. Gardening can be a great outdoor activity for children and parents to do together. When children are more involved in helping grow produce, they show more interest in tasting fruits and vegetables that may be new to them. They may also learn new skills by helping plant flowers around the house.
