Easy Creative Garden Gift Giving Set For Kids

Garden Set for Kids


Preparing Your Container

  • Choose a good sized box for your gift
  • I bought apples in this one
  • Stick pictures from wrapping paper or old magazines onto the outside with a glue stick, to hide ads and script.
  • Line with yellow crepe paper to match garden theme.

Gardening tools and Seeds


Garden Set Items Ready To Pack

  • As you can see from the photo above. All the contents to place inside gift box.
  • The garden tools were relatively inexpensive and specially created for kids
  • Bought some green bean seeds and as it is Spring, they will be able to be planted at correct time of the year.
  • The little pots come with various seed of veggies and flowers and one receives them at the pay point, if you purchase over a certain amount, in their store. They inspired me to create a gift for my grandson.

Up-cycle an Apple Box

Re-cycled boxes can save you quite a bit of cash as a bought one, can be costly. Notice the yellow paper showing through the round holes in the box.

Gifts Are Always Appreciated


Add Some Yellow or Green Ribbon To Handles

Fun way to create a gift. This was thought up only when I got home and was about to discard the apple container. Also was a very sturdy box so thought it a great pity, to throw it away. We hear so much about reusing the old and creating a new idea.
