“What is personal growth?”
If your kids have asked this question, you may like to try this lovely activity to help them explore the answer:
Yesterday, my two small friends and I took Einstein’s words very seriously and researched (played) outside for hours. This is a snap of what we collected.
We talked about seeds and their potential to grow into beautiful trees and flowers. And then we talked about the seeds of character like – the seed of generosity, grit, compassion, empathy and love that we plant in our hearts every day through our interactions with one another.
One day those seeds we plant in our hearts will blossom like these beautiful flowers and the world can benefit therefrom.
To do this activity all you need are curious minds, time and your presence. Enjoy every moment of discovery.
“Play is the highest form of research.”
– Albert Einstein
