Create a little garden at home (4 - 5 year olds)

Gardening is relaxing and interesting and it also helps to gain hands-on experience. We encourage you to experiment with growing your own fruits and vegetables at home too!

Home Learning

Since you may not have seeds or soil at home, there are other ways to experiment with vegetable growth. We challenge you to regrow garlic and ginger at home! Simply place them in water, observe and watch it grow! You can also try with other vegetables such as potatoes and green onions. Children can observe how they grow, and make the plant’s diary.
