|Planting a garden takes planning, but it will be worth the effort!|
My idea for this post was to help you and your children combat Spring Fever by providing instruction on planning a garden. In doing research on how to plan a garden, I came across a wonderful guest post on a blog I follow. Welcome to Normal blogger, Caitlin Wray covered the topic so well and from such a unique point of view, that I had to share it with all of you. Her post, Planning a Simple Sensory Garden by Caitlin, includes detailed instructions on how to plan for a garden for all eight of your senses. Yes, you did read that correctly --- all eight. This plan goes beyond sight, sound, smell, taste and touch and includes your vestibular, proprioceptive and interoceptive senses. Intrigued? Didn't even know you had those senses? Well, check out her plan that is in her words "full of sensory experiences for your child. It's purposeful, therapeutic time spent together with nature. What better way to welcome spring?"
Do you have any helpful tips on planning a garden? What are your favorite flowers and plants to plant and why?
