Group activity ideas for kids age 2-100
- Plant A Hope, Water A Dream: Give each participant a Seedle and a small pot with soil. Plant the Seedle and care for it until it outgrows the pot and can either be transferred into a garden or a bigger pot. You could do this as an individual activity or a group gathering. Sharing hopes and dreams out loud with each other builds community.
- Garden Day: Designate a Rainbow Garden Day and invite participants to plant the Seedles directly in the ground. Take volunteers for watering and/or meet regularly for Garden Day.
- Wildflower Bingo!: Get pictures from the internet and make Bingo sheets. The Maryland mix contains some or all of the these flowers: Common Yarrow, Black-eyed Susan, Showy Goldenrod, Common Milkweed, Red Columbine, Purple Echinacea, and Wild Bergamot.
