Children's Wildlife Projects - Overview

What makes a kid happier than flying critters and creepy-crawly things? Every child seems to have a natural curiosity toward nature's wildlife - be it a worm in the ground or an eagle in the sky. So how can you take advantage of this natural curiosity and bring this wonderful world within your child's reach? Your garden, of course. (Your balcony garden is the answer to everything - haven't you figured that out yet?)

There are certain plants and flowers that will attract the birds and the bugs (and you can tailor this to the more desirable ones). Your child can have a chance to create something that will allow them to see hummingbirds and butterflies "up close and personal." And your children can even have some contact with "nature" by helping you prepare a worm-compost for your more "adult-oriented" plants.
