One great way to raise a kid who loves eating his or her veggies and understands the importance of taking good care of the environment is to start gardening together at an early age. Earl May’s educational toys, kits and tools are made just for kids and designed to make gardening even more fun, so your little ones won’t be able to wait to go outside and dig in.
By working the soil with your child, you’ll teach them how to sow seeds, tend and protect their plants and to enjoy the fruits – pun intended – of their labor. They’ll learn why good soil is important and how the sun affects growth. They’ll learn about common pests and helpful insects. And in addition to being more likely to eat fruits and vegetables they’ve helped to grow themselves, they’ll have personal knowledge of the work that goes into producing food, making them more likely to appreciate its value.
