Family Time Calendar: Flower Child

Taking children to a botanical garden or local nursery can launch a lifelong love of gardening. They'll no doubt enjoy discovering a rainbow of flowers and different species of plants. Perfect for little green thumbs, many gardening centers provide activities for children such as planting and harvesting, as well as nature-inspired arts and crafts like flower pressing. If you are planning to plant a garden in your own backyard, encourage your children to help by purchasing a set of child-sized gardening tools. They may especially love helping you grow an edible garden filled with vegetables that they can actually eat!
