Educational Ideas & Tips for Fun!

Summer’s almost over. School schedules, sports and homework are on the horizon. Before you’re inundated with responsibilities, take a little time to enjoy the last days of freedom with the kids. We’ve got some great ideas for you! All of us at Eden Brothers are committed to educating our children about the wonders of nature, and we hope you’ll join us.

Watch it Germinate

One of the easiest ways to teach kids about the growing cycle is to help them plant seeds in a clear container. They can watch every stage of germination and learn about the importance of water, oxygen and proper temperature. Beans are perfect for this activity because they are so quick to sprout.

Grow Your Salad

What better way to learn about planting, harvesting and cooking than to do it all yourself. Help your child select their favorite salad ingredients from our Veggie Seed catalog and let them be in charge of everything, from managing their own section of the garden to setting the table for a fresh homegrown salad.

Plant a Habitat

Teach kids that by planting gardens designed to attract bees, hummingbirds and butterflies, they”re supporting a healthy ecosystem. Pollinators clean the air, stabilize soils, support other wildlife and much more. Easily search for your pollinator of choice on our Flower Seeds page.
