Home Gardening Activities for the Whole Family

Finding indoor gardening-related activities can be daunting, 和, 对于那些孩子参加了学校菜园计划的家长来说,这更是一个挑战,因为学校一直关闭到秋季. 为了提供帮助,GCG为全家整理了一些我们最喜欢的室内园艺活动! 我们的教育和项目经理, Caitie (who is working from home with her adorable 18 month old daughter Julia), 汇编了一些GCG最喜欢的适合全家参加的室内园艺活动. Here are some of our recommended activities for all ages.

planting activities that can be done at home with everyday materials.

种子带

从万维网.onegoodthingbyjillee.com

Making seed tape is a fun, meditative activity that helps you plan out your garden. Not only does seed tape make for orderly rows of plants, 它可以帮助种子在第一次浇水或在春雨期间被冲走或被冲刷得太深.

  1. 把报纸剪成1英寸宽的条状. 你也可以用厕纸,白色的条状纸,或任何一种轻质再生纸.
  2. 有几种方法可以制作一种简单的胶水来帮助你的种子留在原地. You can mix flour and water to make a glue paste the consistency of thick gravy. Or, you can mix one cup of water and one Tbs of cornstarch and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture starts to boil and gel. 埃尔默的胶水也会起作用.
  3. Use a Q-tip or paint brush to dot the paper strip with your glue. 查阅种子包装或种子目录,找出合适的距离,使你的点适合你正在种植的种子类型. This can be a great opportunity to practice measurement skills! 例如, 如果种子要间隔1英寸, 你的孩子可以用一把尺子,标出每一英寸的增量,作为在哪里轻拍胶水的指导.
  4. Place a seed on each dot and set the strip aside to dry.
  5. 植物种子的一面朝上,用土壤覆盖到种子包或GCG的经验指示的深度.
  6. 水和等待!

GCG Rule of thumb – Planting depth depends on the size of the seed. General rule of thumb is to plant a seed about as deep as it is large.

迷你鸡蛋盒温室

弄清楚如何重复使用各种容器,并把它们变成锅是一件很有趣的事情. 我们最喜欢的一种是塑料鸡蛋盒. 种子有需求! You and your mini greenhouse can provide for a seed’s germination needs of water, 土壤, 温暖, 请遵循以下步骤:

Plants need water through all phases in their lifecycle, but not too much! Use a thumb tack to make several holes in the bottom of each egg well. 把花盆底部的水排出去很重要,这样根部就不会泡在池水里了. Roots need to take in water, but they also need to breathe air! 旧的烤盘和容器,比如外卖顶部,可以用来在你的小温室下面接水. 水 gently with a spray bottle or spoon water into the wells.

土壤

Use potting 土壤 or seed starter mixes that are lightweight and hold onto moisture. 确保土壤湿润. 这意味着当你挤压一把土壤时,它会因为里面有一些水而粘在一起, 但当你放手的时候,就会崩溃. 它既不湿也不滴水. 每天监控.

种植数量及深度

鸡蛋箱的孔很小. Depending on the size of the seed, plant 1 to 3 seeds per well. You can plant more, especially of smaller seeds, and thin them to 1 to 2 seedlings. Planting depth depends on the size of the seed. The GCG general rule of thumb is to plant a seed about as deep as it is large. 你也可以阅读种子包装或种子目录说明,以了解如何种植你的种子. 用记号笔直接在塑料上写上你的小温室的品种,或者在一张纸上做一个钥匙. It’s great to write the date you sowed the seeds as well!

温暖

Seeds do well if their environment is warm and moist during germination. 播种之后, 关上温室的盖子,但要每天监控,看看你需要如何调整温室的顶部,以保证适当的通风. Use a loose rubber band or pinch the egg carton closed in the middle. Heavy condensation is a sign that more ventilation is needed. If you see condensation, open the lid a little more. 在一般情况下, 当种子发芽的时候,把你的温室建在家里温暖的地方是很好的. For most seeds, this doesn’t need to be in the sun.

太阳

一旦你的种子发芽了,就把你的迷你温室战略性地放在窗户旁边. A south facing window with 6-8 hours a day is ideal. 如果你没有这个,也没关系. 利用你所拥有的.

移植时间

5月15日通常是户外种植的安全时间,因为新英格兰的霜冻危险已经过去. “硬化”幼苗,把它们放在外面一个有遮蔽的地方2-3天,然后再把它们种在地里. Don’t forget about them outside and take them in at night! When it’s time to plant, squeeze the bottom of wells to loosen the 土壤 plug. The plug should somewhat maintain the egg carton shape. If it all falls apart it may be a little too early to take them out. 根可能没有机会生长. 你看到塑料的根基了吗? 是时候种植了! 不要让你的幼苗被根系束缚.

自己做报纸罐

  1. 找一个空的玻璃罐. 如果有盖子,就把它打开.
  2. Cut a full spread of newspaper in half down the center seam. Fold one piece in half lengthwise and give it a good crease.
  3. 把你的罐子卷起来,让报纸的边缘离罐子底部有3 / 4英寸高. Roll the newspaper all the way around the jar.
  4. 报纸会在罐子的嘴巴上方盘旋. 把这张报纸压在罐子里.
  5. 把报纸罐从罐子上扯下来.
  6. 握拳,用你的拳头把报纸压在锅里.

授粉的活动

4月, 五月, 六月是外出观察各种盛开的鲜花的好时机. It’s also time to keep your eyes out for pollinators, like bees. 花解剖 teaches the parts of the flower and how pollination happens. A 花寻宝游戏 在你的附近欣赏所有不同的美丽的花朵,并识别这些花的部分,这是一个很好的方法吗. 你可以像蜜蜂一样在 摇摆舞比赛 在学习蜜蜂如何交流的时候.

花解剖

解剖一朵花. 绘制并标记花的部分.

一朵花由哪些部分组成?

注意花药(顶部有花粉的雄性部分)和雌蕊(雌性部分包括柱头,柱头是通向包含胚珠的子房的开口).

授粉是什么?

在授粉过程中,昆虫在啜饮花蜜时,会摩擦花的花药. 花粉粘在昆虫身上, 不知道, 昆虫携带花粉,并将花粉摩擦在同一或不同植物的花柱头上. 花粉沿着花柱到达子房,使胚珠受精,使胚珠发育成果实,整个种子可以发芽长成一株新植物(植物繁殖)。!

花寻宝游戏

Go out in search of flowers and you will be amazed at how many you find! Challenge yourself to look for the smallest flowers. 例如,六月初的一棵小草上开着小巧玲珑的花朵,很容易被忽视.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

材料

一个收集杯

放大镜

提示

  •   Take only one individual flower of large composite flowers, such as rhododendron.
  • In many cases it may not be appropriate to pick a flower that you find. It might be in someone else’s yard or there are less than ten of a kind. 在这种情况下,从远处欣赏,轻轻地看里面的花解剖,或拍张照片.
  • Count up how many different flowers you have found and share them with your family.
  •  你可以用字母i来识别这些花.d. 指南.
  •  新闻 flowers between sheets of heavy paper tucked into the pages of a heavy book.

摇摆舞姿

Bees need a lot of nectar and pollen to feed the bees in their hive. 蜜蜂从花中获取花蜜和花粉. 当一只蜜蜂发现了花,她会回到蜂巢,让其他蜜蜂知道在哪里可以找到花. 她通过在摇摆舞中如何移动身体来传达花的位置! Have fun imagining what it’s like to be a bee in this hide-and-seek dancing game. This game can be played by two or more players.

材料

A flower or something to symbolize a flower (for ex.丝带)

Background

摇摆舞, 一只蜜蜂径直向前跑一小段距离,然后绕个半圆回到起点. 她再次跑过直线段,然后以一个反方向的半圆形返回. 这支舞遵循8字形的模式. 在直线伸展的过程中,蜜蜂移动身体的后端,并在行进时发出嗡嗡声. The direction of the straight stretch tells the direction of the flower. The farther the target, the slower the waggle dance. 例如:在15秒内, the bee may complete 8 to 9 figure eights for a food source 200 meters away, 4 to 5 figure eights for a food source around 1000 meters away, and only 3 figure eights for a food source 2000 meters away. The farther the flower patch lies from the hive, the longer the dance lasts. A bee communicates how good the flowers are as a food source by how excited she is. When excited she will flutter her wings to produce a vibration sound.

怎么玩

步骤

  1. Pick your hive space in a room or outdoor area.
  2. One person, the “scout bee,” secretly hides the flower or flower symbol.
  3. “侦察蜂”飞回蜂房,按照下面的舞蹈步骤跳“摇摆舞”:
  4. 面向花的方向.
  5. Waggle-walk while taking a few steps in the direction of the flower. The speed at which you waggle your bottom tells how far away the flower is. 如果花很近,就快摇.
  6. Circle to the right back to your starting place.
  7. Waggle-walk again in the direction of the flower.
  8. This time circle to the left back to your starting place.
  9. 这就是摇摆舞.
  10. The other bees then “fly” off to find the flower.
  11. 一旦花朵被发现,挑选一个新的“侦察蜜蜂”隐藏花朵并开始跳舞!

快乐的成长!
