hello
no I'm not talking about trading kids.
my son Timmy (4 1/2years old)likes to garden and he is always asking me about the boxes and all the goodies I get in the mail.
I think it would be fun for other gardeners kids to all trade gift boxes, they could contain garden art, easy to grow seeds or bulbs, kids tools, and so on. I think some of the kids would have fun picking out stuff to send to their buddy.
If interested please post some info on you kid(s)
name, age, gender, and interests.
this wont be a secreat swap and I think it would be great to send a photo of the child sending the box in it.
All boxes should be sent priority with delivery confirmation.
I'll take sign up till march 30th I'll post buddies on the 31st. Boxes should be sent by april 10th.
If I have forgotten anything let me know, please post any questions you have.

Michelle,
What a great idea! I am teaching an after school garden workshop at a local elementary school starting in April, this would be a great idea for my kids to at the school to do. I don't have any children at home but I commend you getting your son involved in such a wonderful healthy hobby.

It would be great if GW started an area for kids who garden to share with one another. I would love to be able to pass the site onto my kids and their parents if something got up and running by then. It's nice when kids have a healthy, safe place on the web to share.

Hope this is a hugs success for you.

My daughter is 12 and loves to garden. If she isn't too old she would love to participate. She has her own garden where she grows veggies she likes and flowers and herbs. Sometimes she gets the urge to weed too! Let me know if she is in the appropriate age range please.

RE: NEW: kid 's swap

My daughter (age 5) would like to participate in the kids' swap. She's my little garden helper, and has helped me winter sow (she grew bunny tails grass last year). She's got her own pot of daylily seedlings growing on a windowsill right now.

Her favorite colors are pink and purple. Her favorite animals are cats and elephants. She likes summer bulbs (her aunt sent her some asiatic lily bulbs two years ago, and she loves having her flowers bloom each summer). We don't have a veggie garden right now - flower bulbs, plants, or seeds would work best, or any little kid garden tools or garden books, garden crafts, etc. If you want to include any kind of sweet treat, our daugher is allergic to the food dye red 40 and to chocolate/cocoa butter.

She is VERY excited to get to participate in a swap of her own. Thank you for suggesting and hostessing such a great idea!

 o
RE: NEW: kid 's swap

Ok count us in. My 5 y.o.dtr loves to get mail. And is obsessed with seeds. (Like her mother) Her name is Maya. Any garden ornaments, kids gardening supplies, garden related stickers, books, crafts, and summer gear in general. (sunglasses, bubbles etc...) She is also a chocolate fiend, and loves bubblegum. Looking forward to the swap!
Monica/monipsych


 o
RE: NEW: kid 's swap

Oh no - I will NOT participate in this!
LOL..........yeah right. If my daughter sees this posting she will be jumping up and down to be a part of it.
DD is lovingly know as "my trusty garden assistant". She winter sows, is a perfectionist when it comes to seed collecting and loves all things floral.

So the details:
Soren (girl) age 5
Fav color - yellow
Favorites - butterflies, ladybugs, dragonflies
We have a large garden bed devoted completely to butterfly attracting/host plants
She has flower beds in her play area surrounded by handpainted rocks (so EVERY color combination possible is there!) Sometimes there are more "things" (spinners, stakes, garden critters) than flowers!
We had tomatoes last year (a first) and she was thrilled with growing things to eat.

RE: NEW: kid 's swap

Hi'I would love to sign up my 2 grandsons. Grayson age 3 1/2 and brother Jacob age 5. They love to garden-- last year had a garden area of their own where an above ground pool had been ( things were going well until we had so much rain that it flooded out) they love the sunflowers - pumpkins and bulbs. They are always helping me (whether I need it or not) in the garden. They were so excited to watch the butterfly plants have the caterpillers on them and later see the butterflies flying around. They would love any childrens gardening items- watering cans- windchimes- shovels etc. thanks clay_lady


 o
RE: NEW: kid 's swap

This is getting so exciting as it grows and grows. It is getting hard to hold Shelby back, everyone she reads she figures out what she can send them! WE have had a discussion about how it works and she is still ready to go!


 o
RE: NEW: kid 's swap

My niece ,Tara (12), wants to join.
She wants to do a butterfy or fairy garden this summer.


 o
RE: NEW: kid 's swap

My two girls would love to join in. Rhiannon has already been outside planting seeds, and she has to water them everyday. I know that it will be some time before they get out:)

Here is the scoop

Rhiannon will be 4 in June
Loves veggies and fruits.
Has a pet caterpillar and loves butterflies
loves just about anything

Peyton will be 2 in July
Loves to play in the dirt and eat the dirt:)
Loves helping sister play in the garden
likes all kinds of flowers

Let me know the details. We participated in one of these last year. Rhiannon has already wanted to help me package seeds to give to her friends, can't figure out that all her friends around here don't have gardens LOL

RE: NEW: kid 's swap

My son is 5 and his name is Wayne...
My daughter is 4 and her name is Paris..
My other daughter is only one.

They enjoy things that get BIG. They planted sunflowers last year and got excited they got so big. We like trying to grow pumpkins but did not have much luck with them last yar. We have a teepee in our yard to grown vine plants like cucumbers on.

They are facinated by butterfiles and frogs.

They would enjoy sharing items. Thanks for thinking of this and getting the kids more involved.


 o
RE: NEW: kid 's swap

This is a great idea count my girls in

Kelsie - 11 years old - has her own worm farm (of course mostly used for fishing) - she is into cacti and succs - clean air plants - this year she learned winter sowing and has 3 large pots of columbine, foxglove, and heuchera started outside and she has a tray of hosta and siberian iris started in the kitchen - she likes to make a bean teepee in the summer - hates the color pink - is very into art and jewerly making - has a pet russian dwarf hamster

Cheryl - 10 years old - has a worm farm - likes monarch butterflies - she has her own orchid that has bloomed for her the last 2 years - she likes to grow watermelon, pumpkins, gourds and sunflowers -

The girls like to build bat and butterfly and bird houses They want to build and try a cold frame this year and hope someday I will turn the wood shed into a greenhouse

They have been biten by the gardening bug which is a good thing because without them it would be impossible to water all of our plants

My son is just starting with a diffenbachia and a spider plant hopefully he will like it

Marie

RE: NEW: kid 's swap

Shelby has an "S" garden. It is shaped like an "s" and only contains plants that start with "S". Although she has all of her other plants all over my garden! She has also been known to rename plants to begin with the letter s (like sbachelor buttons) so she can plant them. She likes all colors, even black! She is always losing her garden gloves!*hint* shes a ladies size small or the biggest kids sized you can find

Shelby also has type 1 diabetes, so please don't send candy, this time of year is overwhelming for her. She can have and enjoys sugarless gum, so that's ok if you want to send her a treat.

Thanks!
Melissa


 o
RE: NEW: kid 's swap

My girls are Abigail (10) and Alena (4). Alena loves peas, she loves to pick and eat them right out of the garden, and her favorite color is pink. Abigail's favorite color is also pink. They both love fairies for the garden or any animal things, kitties/puppies/bunnies and such, and they will share a box. Thanks!


 o
RE: NEW: kid 's swap

FUN!
My son's name is James. He'll be 3 soon. He loves to play in the garden with me and is amazed that seeds make plants. He has a few pots that i let him sprinkle seeds in...mainly because I got a little tired of him digging up my tulips!
He would have loads of fun sending and recieving seeds along with a picture.
What a great idea. Please count us in so my little man can have "compooter buddies" too.
Thanks!

If it isn't too late I would like to jump in on this. My kids will share a box.

Scoutt-7 years old has a zoo themed garden. all the plants are animal named. She loves garden tools for digging and anything related to animals. She is my tomboy and doesn't care for girly things. She likes bubblegum as a treat. She is looking for any plants with crocodile in the name to put in her memorial garden to Steve Irwin.

Sebastian-5 years old-he has a sensory garden. Loves anything like garden bells, chimes, gazing balls or other neat things like spinners. Any plants that would be neat to touch, look at,eat, smell, or make some movement like grasses. He hates all candy and treats, but loves red ring pops. Those are the only treat he likes.The candy rings that you put on your finger-the rings only. He is very particular..lol. He loves to plant things and play in the yard. Likes to catch butterflies and dig in the dirt.
Both my kids love books and just anything outdoorsy. They love being outside.

Thanks~Heather

hi
timmy was very excited to go shopping this morning and he helped pick out stuff for jeremy's buddies too.
we will be packing the boxes and send them on tuesday.
timmy kept wanting to pick out stuff for himself too, it was hard for him to get things for someone else and not for him. but it is a great lesson on giving to others.

 o
RE: NEW: kid 's swap

Michelle, I will send a box to herbal's boys so they may join the swap. I don't mind sending 2 boxes instead of the one. I can have my daughter send them a box since that is right up her alley being a tomboy and all. Those are exactly the types of things she likes.

pajohnso-I emailed you earlier. Did you get my email. If it is alright with you just send to my son Sebastian so that Herbal's boys may join in also.

Michelle and Herbal I will send you each an email.~Heather


 o
RE: NEW: oops my bad

Ok I just saw that you were sending a box to herbals boys Michelle. Too early for me. I still wouldn't mind though sending to them if you would like us to. That way you wouldn't have to put your one year old in the swap. Totally up to you. Just drop me an email if you need us to.

pajohnso sorry for the confusion. I thought that herbals boys didn't have a partner and then later realized michelle was going to send another box. Now see this is what happens when you don't have coffee in your system this early in the morning. Now if Michelle wishes us to send then it will change to just my son, but if she is sending then it will stay the same to both my kids.

Really hope I didn't confuse things. I am going to get some coffee now..............

Herbal: my daughter Scoutt will be sending to your boys. She is just like them, likes everything you mentioned:slim, bugs, dirt, ect...

Paula I will email you again. Just my son Sebastian will be sending to you, so you only need to send for him now and not my daughter. We went out yesterday to get stuff for your girls. He had fun picking it out. Going back out again today to get a few more things and then will post when we send. I need an addy from you though. Not sure if your getting my emails so post if you don't get one.

RE: NEW: kid 's swap

I'm late as well, but I saw something.

Rowansgrowin - I would be interested in setting a swap with you on the side, and I'm sending an email. :)

I think it'd be entertaining for our Rowans to share boxes - although mine's a boy. ;)

Thoughts?

RE: NEW: kid 's swap

Hi Lunamoon,

I don't know what's up with the email lately - I haven't received your address yet, even though you sent it yesterday. It sounds like others are having trouble with email too. Would you please try to send it again? My address is: laurelin3@verizon.net, just in case you need it again. Technology is great - when it works. . . .

Laurel


 o
RE: NEW: kid 's swap

Well, I have not received any emails at all yet from anyone regarding this swap. Good thing I checked the thread lol. Here is my email address since gardenweb is not forwarding any to me.

RE: NEW: kid 's swap got my information

Michele,

Just wanted you to know that I just got Paris's information for the swap. I have made contact with both of the girls partners and have sent their information to their partners. Hope that makes sense.

Since there seems to be some confusion with emails and such, it might make it easier to post a list of all that have made contact and those that still need to make contact. I know that some have already mailed, but others still don't have the information that they need.

Hello all:)

We have had the most crazy weather, we have had rain and snow all week last week and more of the same this week. Add to that they showed up to paint our kitchen and bathroom this morning makes it crazy around here. I hope to get a box out this week, I may have to send some plants later if it snows like it says that it is supposed to. Sorry about the wait, not much I can do, Mother nature won't listen to me.

RE: NEW: kid 's swap

fgirl21,

Hoping that you see this, I sent an email yesterday but haven't heard back yet. I was hoping that you have delivery confirmation number for the box for Rhiannon. I know that it was sent on 4-3 and it still isn't here:( (Not your fault LOL) That way I can check it out. I am going out of town for a couple of days while they finish the painting, the girls are already at my folks. So wanted to have the neighbor watch out for the box while we are gone.

Scouttiegirl -- Sebastian's box will be going out tomorrow. We picked out a few things we hope he likes!! Will post the conf number tomorrow.

Paula

RE: NEW: kid 's swap

Hi myohhmy,

Juliana is SO excited waiting for her box to arrive. The USPS has no record of that DC# for their online tracking, so we'll just keep an eye out for the package. Juliana wanted to go out to check the mail when she got up this AM; she didn't like hearing that the postman comes in the middle of the afternoon, and that it might be tomorrow instead of today. I'll let you know as soon as it arrives.

Laurel


 o
RE: NEW: kid 's swap

Scouttiegirl -- the confirmation number is 9104 1899 9948 0018 0200. The box is mostly for Sebastian but we did put a few things in there that Scoutt would like too. I hope they like what we picked, the girls are sooo excited to receive their box too. It should get here today. Thanks!!
