Grow your own mint

Cultivating mint is a fun and educational activity that can help kids learn about where food comes from, while developing new skills. Taking care of a plant will teach them not only to be responsible, but it will also help them understand that every action causes an effect (i.e. if you don’t water the plant, the plant dies).
This simple activity can be useful for many subject areas; from science to home economics.
