Gardening with children

Spring is coming: It is time to plant flowers or fruit,as strawberries, with your children.

Give small hoes to the children and help them to make holes in the ground. They will plant flowers, vegetables and strawberries.

This activity is very useful because children make to feel responsible. Children will start to take care of plants i.e. they will give to them water. I also find this activity very useful for children who do not eat vegetables. At least it works for my child. We decided to plant vegetables: seeds of peas, tomatoes or lettuce. My child sees this vegetables and when the vegetables were ready she start to eat them.
I also tell her fantastic tales, where children were protagonists. These children have superpowers, they take them from healthy vegetables 🙂 .
