Life Lessons learned while caring for plants:

  • Children learn how to consider the needs of another living thing and the consequences if you don’t. 
  • Another possible plus for parents: Houseplants come without the full-scale responsibility of a pet.  
  • Taking care of plants is a great opportunity to learn about responsibility.
  • Preschool-age children can mist leaves with a sprayer or clean dusty plants with a sponge.
  • Older children can remove dead leaves or repotting a plant that has outgrown its container. They can also create a calendar with notations for when it’s time for a weekly watering or monthly fertilizing.
  • When a plant fails to thrive, provide a magnifying glass, and kids can play detective, looking for clues to the root of the problem. Use the acronym PLANTS — place, light, air, nutrients, thirst (water) and soil — to figure out what the plant might need.
