Kids Garden Vegetable crafts

Kids Garden Vegetable Crafts

I love this idea, its so simple and cheap to do. You can do it either with vegetables your growing out your garden or vegetables that you have in your store cupboard.Ā I also love that you can teach your children about vegetables names and the colours!

Its a great all rounder for teaching and having fun at the same time. It might even encourage them to eat them, we can but hope! šŸ™‚
