Tracking Germination

It's the perfect time of year to do this with littles

Do you have any little hands growing flowers and plants this year? Whether they are your children, students, family or neighbors, growing a garden with young people is always a good idea! Help them learn where their food comes from and empower them to provide food for themselves and develop a fun lifetime hobby in the process.

You can also make it a fun science experiment by helping the young people track the growth of their projects. Outdoor Hour Challenge has some handy printouts you can use to draw pictures of your little shoots as they arrive. Keeping it simple and fun will help give the kids ownership of the activity and understand how germination and plant growth work.

How do you instill a love of gardening in young people? Share your tips in the chat.
