Did you know Pansies are great winter flowers?
The best part is that they are cheap!
So, if they die (early)...no biggie!
We took advantage of our last nice afternoon before we start hitting 50 degrees.
It is amazing how much children love to be outside and touch real living things.
My kids jump at the chance to plant, get dirty and make/do.
Even the babies love it.
We chose halloween colors. :)
Children are curious, they learn by doing, and most of them love playing in dirt.
Working, cultivating, and experiencing what comes with gardening, helps children learn about the satisfaction that comes from caring for something over time.
Gardening gives kids a chance to learn important life skills and teaches environmental awareness by exploration.
It is so fun, and anything outside is worth the time, in my book. :)
