Cultivating Curiosity: Celebrating National Garden Month with Family at Pelican Point Preschool

As April unfolds and the world bursts into bloom, Pelican Point Preschool invites families to celebrate National Garden Month by fostering a love for nature and gardening at home. This month-long celebration is an opportunity for parents and children to connect with the wonders of the natural world and embark on gardening adventures together. Here are some delightful activities families can enjoy to celebrate National Garden Month:


Planting Seeds of Wonder at Home:

Encourage parents to involve their children in planting seeds or seedlings in their home gardens or pots. From selecting seeds at the store to preparing the soil and watching the first green shoots emerge, this hands-on activity fosters a sense of responsibility and wonder in children.


Exploring the Magic of Nature in Your Backyard:

Encourage families to explore the natural wonders in their own backyard or local park. From observing insects and birds to collecting fallen leaves and flowers, there’s no shortage of discoveries waiting to be made. Encourage children to ask questions, make observations, and document their findings.


Tending to Family Gardens Together:

Invite families to work together to tend to their family gardens throughout National Garden Month. Whether it’s watering plants, pulling weeds, or harvesting fruits and vegetables, these shared experiences create lasting memories and strengthen family bonds.


Creating Garden Art and Crafts:

Encourage families to get creative with garden-inspired art and crafts. From painting rocks to resemble ladybugs or creating flower crowns with freshly picked blooms, there are endless possibilities for artistic expression that celebrate the beauty of nature.


Harvesting and Enjoying Homegrown Produce:

As National Garden Month draws to a close, families can celebrate the fruits of their labor by harvesting and enjoying homegrown produce together. From crisp lettuce for salads to juicy tomatoes for sandwiches, there’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of eating food you’ve grown yourself.

National Garden Month is a wonderful opportunity for families to connect with nature, cultivate curiosity, and create cherished memories together. At Pelican Point Preschool, we celebrate the joys of gardening and the wonder of the natural world with our families, both in and out of the classroom. Happy National Garden Month!

We look forward to hearing from you!
