Dig, Dig, Dig It’s What We Like To Do! ~ Preschool Thursdays


Thursdays-Preschool-gardenPreschoolers LOVE to have their own little flower bed or even pot of flowers to put on the deck or porch.

It’s a fun trip to the store to pick our petunias or impatiens, home to plant, and then the daily watering is a fantastic way to teach responsibility. It provides a real visual when they forget to be responsible and the flower begins to wilt.

But, conversely, when it does well, what a joy for  your little one to share and show to Daddy and others when they come to visit.

I taught them how to deadhead the flowers too by picking off the dead blooms. It brings new life to the little plant.

So many life lessons can be learned by a little flower!
