Looking for something fun to do during Lockdown? Take a journey with Michael Junior and experience his life in Kenya.

Looking for something fun to do during Lockdown?
We know it can be a bit boring being at home ALL the time so we have created a children’s activity worksheet to be used at home. There are lots of puzzles, activities and even a challenge to undertake.

Take a journey with Michael Junior and experience his life in Kenya.

Michael Junior lives in Kenya, which is in East Africa. He is learning all about planting seeds and looking after them, he is planting a tree sapling, and watering it every day, so it can grow tall, strong and green. He knows it is very important to care for trees. Sadly, because of climate change, many plants in Kenya don’t get enough rainwater and can’t grow.

We would love you to grow your own plants just like Michael Junior. Growing plants and trees will help to care for the environment. Grow with us is a challenge to help our children discover the joy of growing plants from seeds all while learning about the impact of climate change on daily life in many of the countries we work in. 

We would love to see how your seeds are growing so please send pictures of your seeds to Christian Aid Ireland’s Facebook Page, using the hashtag #growwithus. It’s always better when we know who is growing along with us!

The worksheet below can be distributed among your pupils (if you are a teacher), your own children and your church family.
