Dig a hole

To keep your child from digging in your freshly planted flower beds, designate a spot for digging. Give him his own shovel and bucket and watch him go to work.

Scraps of lumber, rocks, small cars, plastic dinosaurs, sticks, or even plant parts become accessories for his imaginary creations. You get bonus points for allowing a container of water for his use. My kids love finding worms and bugs in the dirt, making roads for their cars and trucks, and making mud pies.
