Growing an Herb Garden with Your Preschooler

Growing an herb garden with your preschooler can be a fun and educational activity that can teach them about nature, plants, and cooking! Not only will it provide an opportunity for quality time with your child, but it will also help them develop important skills such as responsibility, patience, and curiosity.

Getting started

To start, choose a sunny spot in your garden or a container that can be placed in a sunny area. Herbs such as basil, mint, parsley, and cilantro are great options for a child-friendly herb garden. Let your preschooler help you pick out the herbs and the container! Next, teach your child how to plant the herbs by adding soil and placing the seeds or seedlings in the soil. Encourage your child to water the herbs and watch them grow.

Once the herbs start growing

As the herbs begin to grow, involve your preschooler in the care and maintenance of the garden. Teach them how to prune the herbs and how to harvest them. Once the herbs have matured, use them to cook with your child! You can make a simple pasta dish with fresh herbs or add them to salads and sandwiches.

Growing an herb garden with your preschooler can be a rewarding experience for both you and your child. It’s a great way to teach them about nature, plants, and cooking, while also providing quality time together. Watching the herbs grow and using them in your meals will be a memorable experience that your child will treasure.
