Plant a Tree!

ages 2-6

Activity Detail

It's just that simple - plant a tree! Use this experience to honor a loved one. Teach your child about the many functions of trees and how they benefit our environment. Be sure to include a basic botany lesson -- how the roots will help the tree to drink water, how the leaves soak up the sun to help the tree grow. You might also want to educate your child on the types of trees that are found in your geographic area. If you are fortunate enough to live near a forest or wooded area, this would be a great time for a family hike and picnic! Surround yourself in nature.

The activity is not complete--what seeds work the best?, what are the processes of planting a tree vs. a plant or flower? You have to help those of us who are not near wooded areas, but would love to do this activity!
