With the warm sun that has been present these last few weeks, there are many possibilities in terms of outdoor activities.
Beyond cleaning and clearing the yard, children are rediscovering the toys they loved so much last year.
With all the environmental awareness campaigns, many families have gone green and now have their own garden. Why not make gardening a daily activity?
Of course, planting a garden with children can require a great deal of preparation and, most of all, patience. You must select an area in your yard that is appropriate for planting vegetables, prepare the soil, pull weeds, spread fertilizers, etc. Depending on the ages of the children in your group, little ones can participate. It is never too early to give children responsibilities that correspond to their capacities. Furthermore, gardening makes it possible to raise awareness about healthy eating habits.
Here are a few tricks for gardening with children:
Above all, have fun! Keep in mind that the goal is to offer a group activity. Gardening makes it possible to work together towards a common goal...to eat yummy vegetables in the fall.
If possible, get grandparents involved. They will love to share the fact that when they were younger, gardening was essential and that each family had a huge garden to fulfill its needs. Gardening is also a great intergenerational activity.
Have a wonderful summer!
