Happy Earth Day, Y’all!

With today being earth day we thought it would be appropriate to share a fun activity you can do with your kids to make them feel connected to Mother Earth. Now that Caroline is approaching three (I can’t believe it!) I am finding it increasingly fun to do shared activities with her.  She is a lot more routine driven now, so mommy-daughter tasks are starting to resonate.  This is something we have not tried, but plan to dive into this weekend. Thans to The Remodeled Life for the Pinspiration.

SuppliesSupplies:

  • Container/Box
  • Plastic beverage glasses
  • Soil
  • Seeds
  • Clothespins (or some other labeling system)
  • Little Hands

Here’s whatcha do:

  1. Print out labels or write the seed name on clothespins
  2. Affix labels/clothespins to the cups
  3. Fill up all of the cups 2/3 with soil
  4. Add seeds to the cups (obviously play matchmaker {or as Caroline calls it “matchy match”} with the pre-labeled cups)
  5. Add more soil to the top of the seeds
  6. Place the cups in the plastic container or box
  7. Sprinkle them with a little H20
  8. Place them in an area with some sunshine

 

VOILA! An indoor garden that you and your little one can tend. I can’t wait to get my hands dirty with my little lady this weekend on this activity.  Have you ever done anything like this?
