Pumpkin Planting

For kids gardening is just FUN and exciting.  But what is even more FUN?  Planting the pumpkin you decorated at your Halloween party!!  Now we wait for it to sprout…

Seeds + Sun + Water = Plants!


At Square Roots Preschool, we love to garden!  And on this day, we made greenhouses!!  The children get really excited every time we plant something, they just love to watch it grow.  Learning through gardening connects kids to their food and engages them in nurturing a healthy planet.  The children learned what a plant needs to grow and flourish…Soil (here it was a paper towel), water, sun and of course, seeds.  We planted beans and peas in our greenhouses and every day they get to see their plants sprout roots, stems and leaves!
