Over the long weekend, I decided to create a fun, hands-on learning experience for the kids by planting our own container garden of tomatoes, green peppers and sweet basil. In my head, I envisioned a mini science lesson of sorts. Starting out with worksheets about plant growth and the identifying the different parts of the plant. Pretty ambitious for 5, 3 and 1 year olds I know LOL! While it didn't quite work out that way, I think the experience was a lesson in and of itself.
