Directions: Teach a lesson about the creation or ask questions about why the creation is important and why we should love and respect the Earth. Then put a small amount of soil into each tub and let the children decorate their own creation/garden with leaves, rocks, weeds, flowers, sticks, etc.
Note: If you don't have access to these items or if you worry it will be too messy you can choose to have the children make a paper garden using clipart.
