This post brought to you by Miracle-Gro. All opinions are 100% mine.
Summer is upon us and tons of fun-filled activity awaits. Gardening is one of the fun and satisfying activity we can do in this fine weather. Have the children get involved by doing what they are good at, playing with their toys. Miracle-Gro’s The Gro Project is here to help out! Miracle-Gro has wonderful gardening ideas that they want to share to all the gardeners out there for kids and adult alike. Indoors or out, kids can cultivate their own flowers and vegetables with the help of Miracle-Gro® Kids gardening kits! Visit miraclegro.com for fun gardening projects. I have picked a fun garden projects that best suited for my kids, a Toyrarium. Simply follow the step by step instructions and the necessary materials mentioned below for this garden project.
The Gro Project
What You Need

• A spoon
TOYRARIUM
Step 1: Start It Cover the bottom of the container with a layer of rocks.
Step 2: Fill It Up Fill it about 1/3 full with potting mix.
Step 3: Dig It Use the spoon to plant succulents in the potting mix, adding more mix to create your landscape.
Step 4: Stage It Set the scene with your toys. Careful not to overwater! Use a spritzer to moisten only when it gets very dry in there.
Step 5: Green Thumbs Up! Add a little imagination and watch it come to life.

My kids particularly my son grabbed a seed at the store, a pumpkin seed because according to him he will plant them but unfortunately my husband ended up planting it. I should show this activity to my kids, I'm sure they will love it.

Definitely a great activity for the kids this summer. They can be creative and use whatever toys they want to put inside.

This is a great project. I'm a few years away from doing some projects like this with my son, he's just too young. But I am bookmarking this for the future! Thanks for sharing!
