This adorable garden is fun for kids that like to cook with you. It is simple to create a Kitchen Magic Garden that can sit on the counter year-round or on the deck in the summer time. This makes a fantastic gift! These gardens are made with herbs because they grow fast and grow back so your family can use the crop over and over again. This container is a large tomato sauce recycled can (thanks, Costco). We used DIY cute markers to make the herbs – these are fun to make for yourself or make great birthday or hostess gifts.This would be a fun project for a birthday party for kids or grown ups.
Although this is not really a ‘Play in Garden’ you could have a basket of kids sized cooking utensils, an apron, recipe cards so they can take their favorite recipes home. Garden fun year round. What’s a Magic Basket?
Make A Can Container
This is one of the simplest and most affordable ways to bring plants into your life or as a gift to a friend. All you need is a can (any size), screwdriver, hammer, saucer, dirt and plants.
1Clean Out Can: This giant can is from Costco. Once I used the tomatoes, I washed the can and let dry. Leave the label on – it’s so cute!
2Add Drainage Holes: Hit a screwdriver with a hammer to pierce the bottom of the can to allow water to drain.
3Plant: Add soil to the can, add the plants and add the plant markers. Be sure to have a saucer for the can to capture draining water.
