In "World of Wonder," a Tapestry of Faith program
This activity requires some advance preparation, but can be very rewarding for a congregation. Flowering perennials, which will come up each year, are easy to plant. Small shrubs are also easy to plant and will last a long time.
On planting day, have the children take turns digging holes, putting in plants, watering, and mulching. Engage adult volunteers to help as needed. Take pictures or videotape of the planting project and plan to share these with the children in a subsequent session.
Let the children and their families know what time of year the plants start blooming or when prime wildlife season is for the plants. Encourage families to make a special effort to visit and observe the plantings at those times.
