I have four boys, and struggle to get them all involved!  We are starting over on a new,  .25 acre property, and my (pre)teens are not at all interested.  Ages 2 thru 7 always want to be put with me, but 11 hits and it's a chore.

Briana you might find this thread helpful City Kids Turned Farm Kids there are a variety of different ideas in this thread. Maybe some of the ideas could work for you.

 
If I'd had more time, I would have written a shorter letter. -T.S. Eliot such a short, tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
