Grow a Sunflower
Growing flowers or vegetables from seeds is a good way to introduce children to gardening. Decorating a little pot turns this into a fun creative activity too.
Time: 15 minutes
Age: Under 5's
The waiting is the hardest part and my son checked his pot everyday. After a few days and a little bit more water, a tiny shoot and leaf appeared. Once it gets a little bigger we will plant it in the garden and then measure how tall it gets.
Once you have a lovely big sunflower with lots of seeds you can save some to plant the next year and give the rest to the birds in winter.
My son created this lovely pot and sunflower at a kids activity day where the very fun people at the Oxfordshire Play Association
had a stand.
