Getting your kids out in the garden may not always be easy. Whether it´s the rubbish weather or being glued to devices we know it can be a struggle. That´s why one of the ways that we think you can get your kids outside is by getting them into gardening, and this gardening journal for kids is a great way to keep them on track and excited to be outdoors. Take a look at this free printable!
My seed journal
We like to show you what you will be getting before you print it out, so take a look at our gardening journal for kids.
The gardening journal for kids is a simple one page sheet that you can print out multiple times to make a seed journal for your kids to use to keep track of their different seeds and plants.
This is a simple but effective way to help keep them organised and encourage them to care for their seeds. And of course, a great incentive to get them into the garden as they will love the feeling of responsibility and seeing their seedling grow into a flower, herb, vegetable, or fruit.
Here’s what’s on our sheet and what your kids can track:
- What they planted,
- When they planted it,
- A list of the plant care required, such as pest control,
- When they need to water their plant,
- How much sun their plant has gotten, and,
- When they need to harvest their plant.
As you can see, it’s so simple but it is a great way to get the kids to be responsible for their seedlings and watching it grow. This is also a lovely activity to give kids a bit more responsibility as well as help them give their self-esteem a boost by being able to nurture something from a seedling into a living thing.
All in all, we recommend you getting your kids in the garden because they will learn so much!
