Get the Kids to Go Green with Spring Gardening
The snow is out and spring is in! Gather the whole gang for some great outdoor fun and bask in the early rays of the season.
There are plenty of choice activities that parents can have for the kids or the whole family. It can be a backyard party complete with the best bubble machine, go out on a simple picnic, throw some Frisbees in the park or have relay games in the field. The possibilities are almost endless but one of the best activities that parents can do during spring is to teach the kids how to garden.
Teaching the kids about nature and environment can be more effective if the kids can literally get their hands on it. The kids can start by choosing the seeds that they want to plant and burying them in the soil. Discovering some creepy crawlers along the way is another exciting way to learn about the ecosystem. Nurturing the plant until it bears fruit or flowers takes time and patience but the kids will be happy to see the fruits of their labor once it arrives.
It is also a great way to train them on taking care of the environment and help protect the future of the planet. Bring them along to gardening events in the community or take them out to a camping and nature trekking trip to give them a wider exposure and experience the vast gardens of the earth.
