Mini Gardening with the Boys

Several years back when Nicholas was a little bit older than Warren we started our annual

tradition of creating a mini garden.  Now that Warren is 3, I decided that this year,

he needed to make one of his own.  I found this cute Woodland Garden Kit* (affiliate link)

from  It was a great start for Warren’s garden.

( was generous and sent me a Woodland Garden Kit to use in this post.)

The kit retails for $12.99 and comes with so many cute accessories to add to your mini garden.

A great value, cheaper than buying everything separately.

I had all the supplies and plants ready to go and the boys quickly got started on their gardens.

They loved digging in the dirt, putting in the flowers and decorating their gardens.

We added a hedgehog, garden gate, bridge, mushrooms, wood slices, rocks and cute little

garden signs.  (All included in the Woodland Garden kit.)

We were having so much fun, even Grandpa joined in on the fun.

Mini gardens make such a fun family project.

I do believe Warren’s favorite part was the water bottle. 

He loved spraying everything, including himself.

Nicholas was more serious about his mini garden.  (this is his 4th year making one)

You can read about and see Nick’s first garden here.

I love doing special these projects with the boys.   After the mini gardens were finished, they

ran around the yard spraying each other (and occasionally me) with the water bottles.

They keep life fun!

FYI… also has a Fairy Garden Kit in addition to the Woodland Garden Kit.
