Watering plants is crazy important–and gallons of Fun!

In order for plants to grow big and strong, they must eat and drink–just like you. Since most plants don’t have “mouths”, the food they require first must be dissolved in water so the plant can take up the food nutrients they need.

When plants are very thirsty for a drink of water, their leaves and stems will wilt. This means the leaves and stems become limp and loose the healthy vigor they once had. Sounds kinda like when you or I are thirsty!

This is how you can keep your thirsty green friends healthy and happy.

Watering just for Kids

Here’s how to water plants in a garden:


❦ Get the Right Equipment:

You’ll need a watering can or a hose with a spray nozzle. Make sure it’s not too heavy for you to carry if you’re using a watering can.


❦ Check the Soil:

Before you start watering, stick your finger into the soil near the plant. If it feels dry about an inch deep, then it’s time to water. If it’s still damp, you can wait a little longer.

Be sure to Check the Soil for Moisture


❦ Water at the Base:

When you water, aim for the soil around the base of the plant, not the leaves. Plants drink water through their roots, so that’s where they need it the most.


❦ Supply Enough Water:

Make sure to give each plant enough water. You want the soil to be moist but not soaked. If water starts pooling on the soil, you’ve probably given too much.


❦ Water in the Morning or Evening:

It’s best to water your plants early in the morning or later in the evening when it’s cooler. This helps prevent water from evaporating too quickly and gives the plants time to absorb it.

Water your plants in the Morning or late Afternoon


❦ Watch the Weather:

If it’s been raining a lot, you might not need to water your plants as much. But if it’s been really hot and sunny, they might need extra water to stay hydrated.


❦ Be Gentle:

When you water, be gentle. You don’t want to wash away the soil or damage the plants.


❦ Be Patient:

Sometimes plants take a little time to show that they’re thirsty or that they’ve had enough water. So be patient and keep checking on them regularly.



Remember, taking care of plants is like taking care of a little green friend. They rely on us to give them what they need to grow big and healthy!

Not quite a magic wand, but you can make it rain on command with your Rain Wand.
