There is nothing more rewarding than planting a seed and seeing a garden grow from it. Every spring, we plant a garden and tend to it daily. We watch seedlings grow into plants, and plants bear fruits and vegetables. The part that I did not expect was how invested my children would be in the process. They care for the garden with a love and care I did not foresee. When they grow fruits and vegetables on their own, they tend to eat them, or at the very least, try them. I have a lovely backyard garden, my children are cultivating a love for gardening, and my children and are eating lots of fruits and veggies. I call that a win-win-win!
As a reward for all their hard work, I decided to bake my kiddos Shake-n-Pour brownies. As they were baking, we decided to repurpose the container and make a watering can out of it. It was super easy to do, and I love when I can show them how to recycle containers for other uses. Here’s how we did it.
