Has it been a while since you’ve taken the kids to the Huntington Garden?  Spring is the perfect time, when it’s warm enough to let the kids splash in the Children’s Garden (don’t forge the change of clothes – they will get drenched!), yet not too hot to walk around (carrying tired kids, or pushing heavy strollers).  And Wednesday is the perfect day, when there is Traditional Chinese music in the Garden of Flowing Fragrance.  Seriously, don’t you feel more relaxed just saying that?

Kids under 5 are free.

How Do You Teach a Child to be Gentle?   In our Tiny Treks classes we explore nature with young children.  In one of our classes we found some Roly Poly’s or Pill Bugs.  The children made a circle around the bugs and watched them as the uncurled and moved slowly on the earth.  They learned that when the Roly Poly felt threatened it would curl up in a ball.  One of the children held a bug in his hand.  He was mesmerized. He stood there simply holding this little black bug as it crawled on him.  He knew if he tried to touch it, the bug would curl up in a ball.  He held in carefully, so the bug would keep crawling. We spent more time than we could have imagined simply holding these precious bugs as each child had a chance to experience first hand what it meant to be gentle.   We knew we could carry this lesson that unfolded naturally in the forest to other parts of their lives.  We could use this moment of holding a little creature to help them understand how to treat a younger or older sibling.  We did not spend time lecturing them on what is gentle, they were able to embrace and experience it first hand in a magnificent way. Recipe to Teach A Child to Be Gentle Ingredients:  An ant hill  A rock or dirt where a Roly Poly/Pill Bug may live A loving adult  A young child Directions:  Take the time to look and observe an ant hill or under a rock for a Roly Poly. Guide a child to observe the bug or ant. Gently place the bug in a child’s outstretched hand.  Cooking time: This is the key to the entire experience, there is no set time.  Some children can observe an ant hill for 30 minutes and others for two minutes.  Take the time to give the child time. Watch and Truly Enjoy!  Pamela Worth is the owner of Tiny Treks.  Tiny Treks classes have encouraged families to get outside and explore for over 16 years.  Visit our website at or our facebook page Facebook Tiny Treks.   “If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement, and mystery of the world we live in.” – Rachel Carson,  The Sense of Wonder
