Urban home-schooling a 4-year-old with an emphasis on play, art activities, nature, and local field trips.

We planted some sunflower seeds and some garlic shoots in our kitchen window.** The garlic is super easy~ you just put the cloves right into the soil, leaving the pointy end up and they grow so amazingly fast so it's really gratifying for a 4-year-old to observe. When they're fully-grown, you can have your child snip them with scissors and cut them up to put in eggs, soup, or salad.
**Please disregard my embarrassingly, disgustingly dirty windows. I'm not quite sure *how* to clean them. I'm not even sure they've *ever* been cleaned. How do I do that? Do people hire window cleaners when they're on an upper floor?
