Open hand mummy

My daughter is only 19 months old but I think it’s important to expose her to as much outdoor activities as we can.

This week I decided to have a car free day and stay at home. Rather than our usual painting, playdough or water play I decided to plant some seeds.

Together we dug some small holes and used old seedling punnet trays to hold the small seeds in place in the dirt (also so they wouldn’t get run over by a lawn mower)

My daughter loved holding the small seeds for different vegetables and placing them in the dirt then sprinkling dirt on top.

Such a simple activity but so much learning take place and it was so much fun!

Hopefully the corn, carrots and rocket will grow over the next few weeks as we ritually water the plants in the morning or afternoon. Image
