Tots! Activity: Kitchen Scrap Gardening

Tots! Activity: Kitchen Scrap Gardening

As Cheekwood’s Tots program is temporarily suspended, we are sharing today’s activity for parents and tots to activate at home. Learn how you can regrow fruits and veggies from produce you already have in your kitchen, then share the progress of your garden with us by tagging @cheekwood on Instagram and using #cheekwoodtots!

Here’s what you’ll need:

• Various kitchen veggie and fruit scraps (garlic, lemon seeds, bell pepper seeds, ginger, sweet potatoes, onions, carrots, beets, celery)

• Various growing containers

• Potting Soil

• Water

• Toothpicks *For sweet potatoes or ginger


Try pairing the activity with one of these books:

Eating the Alphabet by Lois Elhert

Growing Vegetable Soup by Lois Elhert

How a Seed Grows by Helene J. Jordan and Loretta Krupinski
