How to create a miniature garden

School is out for the summer, and you might be looking for a way to get your kids into gardening.

  • Collect rocks and paint them
  • Collect toys from the bottom of the toy box to create a theme
  • Include a pond or bird bath by pressing a clear plastic dish into the soil
