When we help our children to plant a tree, we instill a series of values ​​and principles such as love, respect, dedication, responsibility, ecological and social conscience that will help them make the planet a better place to live.

It is very important that our children know the great value of nature,love it, take care of it, respect it, get close to it, feel it and enjoy it.

At the moment our children make a small hole in the ground, they place the seed, manipulate the earth, water the plants and see how the trees they planted grow, fill them with great enthusiasm and teach them a lesson of respect and love to our natural legacy.

Children should know that:

  • Trees live for a long time.
  • The trunk of a tree is a very hard and wooden stem.
  • The water and food that a tree requires, goes up the trunk under the bark and goes up to the crown where the branches and leaves are.
  • The tree has very thin roots, which absorb water and also large roots which are responsible for holding firmly to the ground.
  • A ranger is a person who works and takes care of a forest.

Why we should plant trees.

All mankind must take action against environmental problems, since these generate other problems of impact on air, water, soil, plants and animals. For this reason, it is essential that man develop and promote strategies to try to reduce the ecological crisis that puts life and stability of the planet at risk. Trees are a solution to combat environmental problems, among its main benefits we have:

  • They regulate temperature and humidity.
  • Purify the air.
  • Protects the soil from erosion.
  • It is home to many species.
  • It gives us shade, fruit, wood, medicine.
  • Absorbs carbon dioxide.
  • It contributes to regulate the rains.
  • Keeps rivers clean.
  • It serves as a refuge for flora and fauna.
  • Help to beautify urban spaces.

All people must plant trees because it is the best maneuver and method to reduce CO2 (carbon dioxide) from the environment. If we all know these multiple benefits, we will reduce their destruction and encourage their conservation for future generations. Without a doubt, trees are very important for the environment and society in general.

To contribute to the environment, I decided to help my child plant some aji seeds.


For this we need:

  • Fertilized land.
  • Containers.
  • Seeds.
  • Water.
  • Eggshells.

Step by Step

Step 1: We make holes in the containers so they can have good drainage.


Step 2: We fill the containers with the earth.


Step 3:We make a small hole (it can not be deep) and place the seeds.


Step 4: Cover with the same land.


Step 5: We add water.


Step 6: We add the egg shells (helps the plants grow)


Step 7: We place the containers in a cool place.


It was a very fun activity, my boy was super excited sowing his seeds.


All trees deserve to be cared for, respected and valued, since they are vital for nature and its relationship with living beings to jointly form an ecologically balanced world.

It is important to prepare children in the culture of caring for and planting more trees, they are the future of our generations that will have the challenge of maintaining many ecosystems.
