Fascinating projects with easy 1-2-3 steps, this book will appeal to the middle-aged child.

Some of the projects in the book include Seeds-in-a-Bag, starting seeds in an egg carton, making your own seed tape, building bird feeders, and it shows how to make rock bugs. Fun, themed garden ideas are also offered, like how to design a fairy garden. Besides the projects, this book explains gardening terms, and tools.

This book has enough activities to keep a child entertained during the entire summer!

Also, it is part of the "Hands on Family" series of books.
