Allow your toddler to water the plants. Talk about the water and how it's wet and cold. Explain to your toddler that it will make the plants grow big.
Walk around your local park or neighborhood. Point out the trees, flowers, plants, and leaves to your child. Talk about them and touch them. Smell the flowers and listen to the leaves blow in the wind. Get the senses involved!
Target the color green
Point to all things that are green outside such as the grass and trees. Talk about them with your toddler. Inside, you can find toys that are green and things in your house that are green. Let your toddler sort colors while focusing on the color green.
