Make a Handy Seed Chart
Gardening is often one of the “greatest hits” of kindergarten. There's something irresistible about combining curious kids with a pile of dirt and a bunch of trowels…and then watching seeds sprout and grow. As they work, kids often get a chance to see different kinds of seeds, but it can be hard to remember which ones end up becoming what. Here's a “full plate” activity that lets your kid connect seeds with grown plants while practicing reading and writing skills, too. And even better: when the plate is complete, your family will have a handy chart to refer to, season after season!
