Children are natural explorers! La Dee Da’s Art and Nature Club aims to introduce children to the basics of container gardening along with arts and crafts inspired by nature. Through easy and tested projects, children will learn to appreciate and delve into their natural curiosity and wonder along with their connection to our planet. Gardening is also a wonderful tactile and sensory experience and can help children self-regulate. The feel of the soil and smell of the earth can bring comfort to many while being educational and showing kids responsibility.
Our curriculum includes learning the basics of container gardening, along with arts & crafts projects inspired by the garden: making mud pies and painting with natural dyes , printing with leaves and fruit, making sun prints, designing a bee hotel, painting rocks, and maybe even a scarecrow. Each week, children will tend to their mini container gardens, observe their plants as they grow, and create an art project. At the end of the 7 weeks, children will be able to take their container gardens home to continue their gardens outdoors, perfect for Spring! Let’s Play In The Dirt!
