Grow plants with the children – spring is here!
Gardening is a beautiful activity now that spring is here! It’s fun to play around with soil and seeds! It is exciting to watch when a small green plant emerges from the soil and then grows and gets bigger and bigger!
When you grow plants with children, choose seeds that will grow fast so they don´t lose interest. It is extra fun if the plant can be eaten! Here are some suggestions for edible plants: cress, pumpkin seeds, sunflower and citrus seeds.
If you are eager to get involved, help the little ones decorate or make their own plant pot! Use old milk cartons, bottles or what you have at home. Make small holes on the bottom for water to escape. Remember, water your plants to keep them happy!
