Then, they planted their own basil plants. Each day, they are responsible for watering their plants. Our occupational therapist recommended using a spray bottle instead of our watering can to help the kids work on fine motor skills (and I like the spray bottle, because it is less likely to make as big a mess!). Hopefully our basil grows and then maybe we can use it to do a cooking activity! Here are some pictures from planting. My kids were very concerned about getting themselves and/or the table dirty throughout the entire process...haha!
