trick the teenies: gardening chores

By raincoaster

How to get your kidlets to do all the weeding you promised your spouse you’d get done while s/he was at work. As tricksy methodologies go, this one has legs; I’m pretty sure this was the only way my ancestors ever got their fields harvested. Well do I remember my mother’s taunts of “your sister’s picked a whole basket more strawberries than you; do you think you can catch her?”

And lookie: here’s a whole list of functional, kid-sized gardening tools, so now there’s no excuse for having a ratty yard. Just equip your teeny team and challenge them to make Ye Olde English Lawne Strypes.

    Well, SOME kids love gardening. As soon as I found out that worms live in the ground I decided I was never going near the garden again.

    But this fellow is innovative; if I’d been encouraged to do target throwing with the weeds I pulled, I’d certainly have pulled more weeds.
