Today was such a beautiful, cold and sunny day, it was the perfect day for a very calming and peaceful activity. I came across this lovely basil plant seeds kit when I was pregnant with Victoire and never opened it. The kit advertises “for children aged 6 to 12” but I figured Sixtine would be able to use it with some supervision.

She showed a lot of interest, patience and concentration, and I really enjoyed painting those rocks with her. It was a really sweet moment. I just love observing her working. She is so meticulous and gracious!

She will be in charge of watering the plant everyday and I am excited to see her reaction to a nice and tall plant!

        I have never tried grass seeds, but mung beans sprout in a day or two. :) I have never planted basil before either–but I love the smell of it! I plan to grow some when we move to our new house. I should involve my baby when he/she’s ready–just so many things to do and he/she hasn’t even arrived yet! :)

    Awesome! Basil is one of our favorites. Once your plant has grown, Sixtine will probably enjoy making some pesto with you or having some chopped basil with her pasta :)

    What a great idea to plant a herb you can have with your meal! I should do this with Finn soon! I like Sixtine’s top by the way, it’s lovely and the colours suit her very well. Love your painted stones, too!

    I love this! My daughter likes digging in the dirt with me when I’m walking in the garden and she helps me plant seedlings – this is a lovely way to extend that experience!
