A great way to get your kids involved

Looking for some fun outdoor activities to participate in with your kids?  They love new things, bright colors, adventure and most of all spending time with you while doing it.  Consider organic gardening and simple lawn decor.  I found some wonderful ideas in an article written by Stacy Pessoney, Gardening With Kids that mentions using wind spinners, hummingbird feeders and wind chimes along with some wonderful organic gardening activities for the kids to get involved in.  Wind spinners can be a fun addition to any garden for kids.  They are colorful, twirl in the wind and there are so many different kinds to get.  Hummingbird feeders are a lot of fun for kids to get involved with.  They can help you make the nectar, pour the nectar in the bird feeder, help you clean the bird feeder and the best part is to wait and watch them come in.  Kids get a kick out of hummingbirds because they are so fast in motion and can be very territorial, so to watch them chasing each other around the bird feeder is very entertaining.  Along with wind spinners, there are so many different kinds, shapes, colors and sizes of wind chimes to choose from.  Kids will love helping you choose wind chimes and placing them in different areas of your garden.  Wind chimes can provide a very musical outdoor environment for everybody.  Make sure to check out some of the other organic gardening activities Stacy Pessoney has mentioned in her article, Gardening With Kids, and get busy with your kids in the garden.  They will thank you and appreciate it!
