Gardening With Children: A Healthy Activity

One of the best ways to make children feel closer to nature, and also appreciate its beauty is by introducing gardening to children. These days life has become more and more artificial, and most children don’t even know that the fruit that comes out of cans or is found in grocery stores was once grown on a tree or bush.

This activity is also a healthy bonding exercise between parents and children and something you both can enjoy tremendously. Here are a few tips how you can make your kids more environmentally conscious and have fun at the same time:

Select seeds of plants that are easy to grow and don’t require too much maintenance. Seeds of tomatoes, sunflowers, eggplants, snow peas, carrots and pumpkins are always good. You don’t have to make your kids get into full fledge gardening, simply take 2 or 3 pots and fill them with some compost-soil mix and plant seeds in these pots. You can always paint the pots before planting seeds in them with your kids. Alternately, you can always plant potatoes in water jars and your kids can watch new shoots grow from the top.

Encourage your children to water plants:

Make a daily or alternate day routine and make your kids water the seeds that they have planted. This way your child can understand the concept of nurturing and watch the shoots grow. Children get very excited when new shoots emerge and for the newly plated seeds.

Picking fruits, vegetables and flowers is the most fun part of the whole activity for children. You can always make salads out of picked vegetables or cook them in colorful ways. This way your children will also develop healthy eating habits, and at the same time enjoy organic, home grown, fruits and vegetables.
