Use the four seasons to teach your child about life and gardening. Explain that in the fall, plants get ready to sleep for the winter. Tell them that in the winter, while the plants are sleeping, they are growing stronger and storing energy for the spring. In the spring, show them the newly wakened plants and explain, that, just like them, they are going to grow quickly and be full of energy and life. They'll learn to relate these things to life in general.
