 Dear Friends,The Outdoor Hour Challenges aredifferent from any other nature study program. These challenges are writtenfor the parent, encouraging them toinvolve the whole family in nature study.All ages will benefit from workingthrough these garden challenges.Gardening, especially with flowers,introduces children to a whole world toexplore. Within the garden realm lies notonly beauty in shapes and colors but also
a complex web of life. From seed back to seed again, the flower’s growing cycle will continue
and our children will begin to understand the role of seeds, flowers, and plants in nature. Thistruly is nature study that can be done right outside your own back door.Each challenge will give you simple instructions and you will learn that growing plants fromseeds is easy. Follow the directions on the seed packet for seed planting depth, watering, andtransplanting. Good first flower choices are sunflowers, zinnias, marigolds, and petunias.Generally, you can grow just about anything in a little cup or pot as long as it gets some sunand a little water each day. If it is still cold at night where you live, you may want to sproutyour seeds indoors.There are many lessons to be learned in the garden.Giving the opportunity for your children to see thewonder of life in a seed is a gift they will treasurefor a lifetime.
