Gardening is something you can do with the children at home. Children will learn that the plant will go into different stages of growing, understand how to be patient while waiting for the plant to grow, and learn to appreciate foods that need to be planted and grown first.
You can teach the children how to plant from seeds. Use store bought seeds or make your own from the seed of papaya for example. Prepare some small container filled with some soil. Water the soil a bit and put some seeds inside. Watch the seedling daily. If you used store bought seeds, just follow the instructions on the package.
