Welcome to another Saturday Science Hop. I am also extremely excited because I am a guest over at The Educator’s Spin On It for their Gardening with Kids series. I am sharing 10 Tips for Starting a Preschool Garden. Writing this post was so much fun for me, that I have been having my own little gardening party here, as well.

There are enough ideas to keep you busy all spring and summer long.
