Getting out and about in the garden is a really fun way of helping your child to learn more about the world around them. Growing and tending to plants and flowers or even just examining leaves and soil helps your little one start to understand about life cycles and where food comes from.
You don't even need to have an outdoor space to enjoy gardening with your little one. A great way to introduce your child to gardening and the outdoors is by simply planting a little packet of seeds or some herbs and growing them in a pot or window box.
If you do have a garden, why not give your child their own section to plant in and tend to? Ensure their plot gets plenty of sunshine, keep an eye on their seedlings and choose a few different seeds to plant to try to avoid disappointment with your little one if seeds don’t flourish or some easily perish.
