Tomorrow is the first day of spring and here at The Adventurous Child we are very excited to welcome in the warm weather. One of our favorite things to do in the spring is to plant a garden. Gardening is one of those activities with unlimited learning opportunities for young children. Science (life cycles, observation, hypothesizing, biology), math (measuring plants, measuring amounts of soil and water), literacy (labeling plants, naming plants), social emotional (providing care, working with others), healthy lifestyles (growing vegetables), the list goes on and on.
Because gardening encompasses so much learning, we have designed a variety of gardening products for the outdoor preschool playground. Our newest garden is the Garden Box. Available in either cedar or pressure treated wood for your natural playground or in maintenance-free plastic, this is a classic garden box that will help protect your plants from run-away balls and feet.
