Ideas for activities and how-to

Plant and Growing Activities - For Science, Art, and Making Presents

growing_eggshell_gardens© ChildForum

Here are 7 ideas for how to do some fun growing activities and keep children busy.  Activities include an onion person, a Humpty Dumpty potato or swede, an egg shell garden, wheat people and more. 

Young children will be able to do many of these growing activities themselves - they just need you to provide the bits and pieces and some examples.  

The activities can be turned easily into science projects if you discuss and keep records of plant growth, feeding, and maintenance.  

A couple of the projects also make suitable 'living' presents for children to pass on to special friends and family members or take to give to their teacher at kindergarten, childcare or home-based care.
