Family Fun: Let's plant beans!


A community gardening team brings kids together to focus on the common goal of working together. In addition, bean education teaches you to take responsibility and care.

When I was a kid, I chased my parents into the spotlight with the Bloody Babysitting Man. At that time I did not know that I would once have babies who had a similar commitment to raising bean sprouts. If all the beans that were planted and raised had been kept in our homes, we would have beans. Even though I have grown older, I do not have the enthusiasm I have for previous years, and I consider it important and support the baby with full breastfeeding, even though I know that protecting the ruins will always be up to me. In addition, there are some other unpleasant consequences / obligations that every baby bean parent has to face: such as the forgetting of a watering can, the crowning or the very same plants are all very professional.

Why do you want to plant and grow beans?

On the one hand, community gardening, even for a short period of time, turns children into a real team that focuses not on the intense contradictions that may exist between them, but on the common goal. With five children, this is not to be despised at all: it is fun to see them working, working together, advising the bigger ones on the smaller ones, who diligently follow the older ones.
Each of these occasions leads them to complete their tasks faster with one another, with the help of one another - and I say this many times, the power of words is much stronger.
They also learn basic human values ​​through plant growth aid, such as responsibility, the inability to care for us / the inferior / the inability to care for ourselves. Children will experience firsthand what happens when they forget to give their baby what they absolutely need, such as water. Seeing a creeping, fledgling plant, it can be realized that unfulfilled work has consequences for others (in this case, for babies, for example, for the life of the family). This may be more effective than trying to draw attention to the causal relationships that affect life (s).
Beans raised in sour cream glasses do not tend to be long-lived; (Believe it or not, seedlings are preoccupied with the idea of ​​thought, even at a young age, and the relationship to it varies with age and personality: fear, denial, acceptance, curiosity).

How?

After all, the only thing left to do is back up: babysitting! How? Let's grease the beans first in a small bowl, like a wet handkerchief (it can gnaw on the cotton wool that is recommended by many, but if we are sour cream boxes, pots! If you relocate them to the glass, the children may see them grow loose as they grow! It is even more traceable to keep track of the number of days the shoots have grown on the dry loops next to the crown of the crown.
