Looking for tips on gardening with kids? You are in the right spot!
Spring time is our favorite time of year. The kids and I get so excited to start planing our seeds and begin working in the garden. We love to start our plants inside early and watch them grow. One thing that is really fun for the kids is to measure their growth each week.
It is still very early in our planing season- in fact it snowed today… We have started plants indoors and they are making progress. We have also started a few early plants outside- peas, lettuce, onions, and kale are all just beginning to peek out above the soil. We really enjoy making our way around the yard to see what is growing and how much it has grown. There is something about the miracle of a seed sprouting each year that brings me & my kids such joy!
Tips for Gardening with Kids
1. Teach about seeds, plant parts, and the life cycle of different plants. This helps kids understand it all- it is a great science lesson!
We have also been using the Calendar Connection Cards from 1+1+1=1 on botany this month in our homeschool. It has been a great thing to study this month since our little plants are sprouting! My kids have learned so much from them and they are a wonderful resource to add to your calendar boards!
