By the Letter
By the Letter is an easy gardening activity for kids that lets them get creative in the yard. Decide on a message together and then spell it out -- the green thumb way.
What You'll Need:
- Small section of soil
- Quick-sprouting seeds
Everyone likes to express their own personal style. So why not let your garden speak for itself? The next time you plant quick-sprouting seeds (ask your local outdoor gardening clerk which seeds sprout fastest in your geographic area), spell out just how you feel.
How to Play By the Letter:
Step 1: Plant in the shape of the first letter of your name, your favorite sports team, or even your favorite singer.
Step 2: Take it a step further and plant only seeds that will bloom in your favorite colors. It'll be a garden all your own.
