SGO: The Joys of Gardening

Since January, Lily has been growing a few seeds if her own.

As part of my blogging life, we used to trial an activity box, one of which involved building a plant pot with its own water reservoir underneath. As the weeks have gone by, she has loved watching its progress and it has been a great lesson in care and love.

Gardening is a great way to teach children about love and caring for something regularly. As Lily is an only child, I am always aware that unlike some of her friends, she doesn’t get to learn about caring through a younger sibling and the tasks of feeding them and changing them.
