Children love to create and they love to get dirty. Let them dig around in the dirt by planting flowers (or better yet, herbs) in the shape of their first initial. Rope out the letter and have them plant seed or seedlings inside this shape. As the flowers or herbs grow, they will have a personalized garden space that only they are responsible for. It will be great time together. An added bonus is the abundance of herbs your home will have all spring and summer long!
