Sunshine gardening +bird watching

With some mild sun protection applied, we headed outside to enjoy a spring day. We started with a  little bird watching and noting. Then did some earth exploring. She found lots of critters digging in the ground. It was the first time she had seen a centipede. She held the worm so gently when she found it. Digging in the earth inspired her to want to plant some flowers. So we started some in little egg cartons and also picked up a few pansies at the grocer.
How do you spread curiosity? How do you guide your little chick in the direction you are hoping? How do you fill their minds with questions then fill in the blanks with answers? I've been investigating idea in an educational model called Leadership Education. It's interesting to see how our country's historical leaders  and founding peoples were educated. I feel like we're both learning so much together and this time of exploration and questioning is so valuable to both of us.
