Gardening Activities to go with Badger’s Perfect Garden
This fun sensory activity comes from Babies to Bookworms. Lay out brown play dough and an assortment of flower shaped beads. Imagine they are real dirt and flowers and you are planting your own garden. One of you might start a flower pattern and have the other finish it. Would you plant a garden in straight rows like Badger or a jumble?
Take a flower or vegetable walk around your neighborhood to see what’s growing. Look for plants that are native to your area. You can find a list of some native plants at the Xerces Society.
Plant your own garden. Go to the store and select some seeds to plant. You can use a current garden plot, a bucket, or other type of container to plant in. Wait for the surprise!
