When I garden, my daughter loves to follow me around with her tools and pretend to do what I am doing with the real plants. We talked about plants, how we take care of them and watch them grow, and why some plants are to be eaten, and others are not. Inside, we watch her create a world of her own. She will take care of her plants and knows that she needs to water them regularly and pretends to water her pots when she sees them among her toys.
