Activity: Dream Garden Collage
If you could grow anything in the world, what would you grow? Use your imagination by looking through gardening catalogs and cutting out your favorite fruits, vegetables, and flowers. Glue them together in a collage to keep as inspiration for this year's garden.
Materials: Seed catalogs (try looking through the recycling bins at the post office. We love Sow True and Johnny's for their colorful pictures), scissors, glue sticks, paper
Look through the seed catalogs together and choose your favorite plants. Pay attention to different varieties- discuss types you like the best, and why. Arrange your plant photos on paper and glue them down.
Extensions: For an extra challenge, draw a map of your garden beds or your yard on your paper before you start. Then glue plant pictures in the spot where you think they would grow best.
