My oldest child is a lot like her grandmom. She loves all animals, being outdoors, and growing things. At any given time you'll find at least two Red Solo Cups filled with dirt and some kind of seed on my kitchen counter. This spring Kenzie started sectioning off a little area of one of our beds as her "garden." We decided that a kids garden was a great idea and let her run with it. Of course it got my DIY wheels turning, and I actually struggled with letting go and letting her "make it her own," but, in the end, I think she did a fabulous job and her garden is just how she wanted it.
Kenzie painted it black and then sprayed it with white spray paint to give it an "old fashioned" look, as she put it. I think for under $1.00 it's perfect for a kids garden!
(I also think it would look adorable to have an ombre fence, by lightening each picket. Not that I butted in and suggested that to Kenz, of course not! :)
