There is nothing like gardening as a family. This is a soothing, relaxed, and educational hobby that can be with the whole family. While gardening can look like a task especially for older children and adults but children of all ages happy to go down and dirty in family parks. Great examples of educational bond activities are teaching children how to plant.
This activity will teach them about nutrition, nature, recycling, and organic gardening. That’s a good result!
- Children will eat healthier: gardening promoting healthy eating. Eating vegetables is an important part of child development. When you teach children how to grow their own vegetables, they will get proud to eat what they make.
- Children will bond with you more: When you force your children to do tasks, they usually do it yourself and they are afraid. When you roam with your child, it helps create a stronger bond in your relationship because you spend time together and have fun. You can go beyond it and cook the vegetables that you plant with your children.
- Children will learn responsibility: through gardening, your child will be experienced in activities they can do themselves. They will learn how to take care of something every day and learn how to follow the checklist, which will benefit them when deadlines become important at school.
- Children will learn that science is cool: gardening is science and children will learn lessons from biology, chemistry, and botany themselves.
- Children will learn patience: it takes time to plant plants. Gardening is a slow process with a lot of waiting, but the results are worth it (patience is a virtue right?), and we agree. We have been able to experience satisfactory moments when the first interest blooms or when vegetable sprouts.
- Children like to eat fresh from the park. For convenience, you might want to plant near the kitchen where children can harvest the goods under your alert’s eyes. So consider doing a quick generation in the container. Cress, radish and lettuce will be ready the fastest in 6-8 weeks. The next line is dwarf beans, cucumbers, cabbage, tomatoes, and onions that will be ready in 8-12 weeks. Most others, including popular carrots and potatoes, will need 16-20 weeks until cooked. You can harvest from this small garden for months!
- Give him a job. Place it responsible for certain tasks, such as watering plants. Use vegetables that are easy to grow (squash, lettuce) and flowers (marigold, petunia).
- Try the theme. Planting “garden pizza” tomatoes, peppers, and basil or “rainbow park” with flowers every color in the spectrum.
Encourage your children to maintain and nurture their little garden, which you have chosen. It’s a great way to teach them practical skills and fill them forever with natural wonders.
Gardening is a great way to bind together outdoors. The memory of planting or gardening next to the mom or dad is sure to be sweet.
