Planting

on April 26, 2012

Spring is certainly here!  One of our favorite activities as the weather gets warmer is going to the store to pick out seeds for our garden.  We always get them started in the house before transplanting them to our garden and our kids love helping!  All you need are

seeds

soil

plastic spoons

pots

newspaper or an old table-cloth

Lay out the newspaper or old table-cloth to reduce the mess factor and give each child a pot.  The kids will love scooping the dirt into the pots and then getting to poke their finger in it to make room for a seed.  The best part for my two is watching it every day to see them sprout and grow.  Happy planting!
