I really hope so Chanda! The important thing is to make the transition for her from virtual to reality. One way to do this might be to take her on a trip to the local garden centre and encourage her choose seeds of her favourite food e.g. tomatoes, pumpkin etc. Help her make a list of all the different pieces of equipment she uses in the apps such as plant pot, compost, watering can and so on and then use that as a checklist to make sure she has what she needs to get sowing!

Other members of the family could get involved in this too - maybe have a growing race (using a child's height chart to monitor the growth of the seedlings/plants is really good fun). The more your niece is involved in the sowing and growing process, the more she will understand the sequence of events as shown in the apps that are required to create the vegetable she likes.

Other fun activities for your niece might be to make some creatures from her growing efforts such as a cress caterpillar (cress is great because it grows so quickly) or a mini scarecrow.

The main thing is to make it lots of fun. Good luck!
