Can You Dig It?

Your child can use a small garden trowel or rigid plastic shovel, and dig whatever dirt is available. It’s fun to make the holes, sure — but it also presents ready-made lessons in what lies under the surface of the soil, such as rocks, roots, and bugs. Begin with a challenge: “Will this dirt be difficult or easy to dig into?” This will show her the difference between hard-packed earth and softer clay or sand. Or ask, “I wonder what we’ll find?” See if she can guess.
