We are well into spring and gardens have been blooming all over. My dream is to start a little raised garden in our backyard to grow some of our own organic fruits and vegetables.
There’s something very calming and satisfying about getting your hands into the dirt and seeing the results of your efforts pay off with healthy food for your family. And I believe it’s valuable for kids to learn to garden and grow food at a young age as well.
In support of young gardeners everywhere, today I am releasing my Gardening Sudoku game for your children to play, learn, and enjoy.
Note: You’ll find more gardening resources on my Botany Unit Study page.
Sudoku is a great way to exercise your child’s brain with fun, engaging, puzzles that stimulate critical thinking and cognitive skills.
The goal of Sudoku – at least when played the usual way by adults – is to fill in a 9×9 grid such that each row, column, and 3×3 sub-grid includes one and only one of each digit from 1 to 9.
Depending on the number of blank spots in the Sudoku puzzle, the difficulty can range from quite easy to extremely challenging. (I’m personally a fan of the really challenging puzzles!)
In the Gardening Sudoku Puzzles I am sharing today, I have made the game kid-friendly by adapting it to use images instead of numbers.
Here is a sneak peak at the four Gardening Sudoku puzzles included in the download:
As you can see, I have included one advanced playing board with a 9×9 grid and three basic playing boards that have been shrunk to a 4×4 grid in order to make the game age appropriate for young children.
