Gardening is an activity that the whole family can become involved in. When you involve your children in gardening, you are not only spending good quality time together, but they too are getting outside in the fresh air and enjoying the many health benefits of working in the soil.
Gardening chores can teach your children responsibility and give them a sense of achievement that is sadly lacking in many other hobbies like playing video games!
Gardening is a great opportunity to teach your children about seeds, plants, and nature. Plan a garden project that the whole family can be involved with, for instance creating a butterfly garden.
Children are fascinated with butterflies! Imagine their excitement and sense of accomplishment when the butterflies begin to flock to “their” garden!
Come visit Viette’s as a family and wander through our butterfly garden, then pick out some butterfly plants to grow in your own garden. It can be a very rewarding experience for both you and your children.
