Planter Box on Wheels

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.

We were asked to build a project for two classes, so we decided to build a couple of planters that will allow them to grow their own vegetables. I pre-cut the boards and drilled the pocket holes at home. Then as a class, we assembled the planters together and filled them with dirt. It was a fun project to build as a class and to see kids get hands-on experience, building something out of wood.

See my website for additional pictures and how I've built it,
