Have you ever wondered how to get your kids to eat more vegetables? If you get them involved in growing their own plants, they tend to take a much bigger interest in eating their leafy greens. But before planting, you need to get a planter and fill it with dirt. To save money, why not build your own DIY Planter Box on wheels? You could even have kids help you, just like we did with a school that our kids go to. Follow this simple plan that I’ve made with step-by-step instructions on how to build it.

Neat project and love that fact you’ve got the kiddies involved… its also great to see you didn’t use rubber wheels, with the anticipated weight…

Now that you’ve got them onto vegies... I would suggested beefier wheels.

What a great project.

That’s for sure to get them to eat their greens…Super way to get them involved at all levels. That’s how I learned.

In my family, the men raised gardens, and the women put up the canned goods. Old timey stuff.

Great idea, and getting the kids involved always a plus. I like that you can move it when needed.

Have your say...
