Spring time is here and flowers are in bloom.
One of my favorite things to do in spring has always been to plant a flower garden with children. As part of my educational curriculum I had the children in my child care bring home a pot of flower seeds they planted. I encouraged parents to transplant the pot of flower seeds as they began to grow in their yard and watch the flowers grow with their children! Take time through the seasons to count with your child how many flowers bloomed – teaching child hands-on math lessons.
My favorite flowers to plant were morning glories because they bloomed for so many months and looked beautiful climbing my lamp post.
