Gardening as a Learning Tool for Toddlers
At two and a half years, we felt it was time to delve into lessons about self-care and responsibility. Simple acts like brushing or exercise became focal points.
Wanting an engaging, hands-on experience, we turned to planting micro-greens in our balcony. The task for Sabi? Water them daily. Some days she’d miss out, and the wilting plants showed it. This wasn’t just about plants. It was about understanding that today’s efforts lead to future results. After weeks of care, she finally got to harvest. The outcome? A fresh salad and a lesson in patience.
A couple of years later, Sabi wrote this note for herself in the journal.
