Early Childhood Education-Encouraging children to start herbs in preschool/daycare


Cilantro, Basil, Mint-these are just a few herbs that children can smell and taste as the begin this activity in preschool/daycare.  This activity can become a math, science experiment, or even decorated and wrapped as a gift.  Children will get the opportunity to add soil to the lemon and orange rhymes and plant a seed. Its a perfect activity for children to use there fine motor skills and also be able to use there senses as they work with the soil and herbs. 
What you need:
-Orange, lemon rhymes

-decorated grass
-clear wrap
