Spring is here and it is the perfect time to teach children about some of the wonders in this world. That includes how things grow. Children love hands on activities and the idea of watching as something grows from a tiny seed. I saw some small planting kits at Target the other day for only $1. There was cilantro, basil, tomatoes, and strawberries. I allowed the kids to do all the work.
I let the kids tend the soil, plant the seeds, water their plants, and we have been watching the plants grow. They loved getting their hands dirty and learning about the sun and plant cycle.
