Watering is an activity that kids can do by themselves, with little or no instruction. Having kids water their garden instills a care taking ethic.

There are many types of bottles that can be used for carrying water. Any large plastic bottle with a built in handle can work. Large salsa, juice, and detergent bottles are all good options.
