Gardening is often touted as a great way to teach kids about flowers, and nature. While this hands-on activity is a fantastic educational exercise, it is also a great way for young children to have fun with flowers. Often children enjoy tactile activities, which makes gardening such an ideal pastime. When children help their parents they are able to dig in the dirt and plant their flowers in the earth. Children then experience the anticipation of their growth and the excitement of tending to their flowers as they bloom. They can continue to have fun with flowers once they've blossomed by creating colorful bouquets or by pressing and drying them. Parents and educators can find books in libraries or activities online that can provide them with further information on how they can help their kids get the most enjoyment from flowers and flower gardening.
