Gardens are beginning to be planted so lets learn about how things grow.
Small plastic ziploc bag
3 cotton balls
2 or 3 large seeds, beans work best
Let the child wet the cotton ball and place in the bag with the seeds placed against them. Seal the bag and tape it to the window where it will receive plenty of sunlight. They will probably see the seeds beginning to sprout in 3-5 days. After the plants grow about an inch you can take them outside and plant them and watch them grow. There are lots of things to learn in this activity. What do plants need to grow? (light, water, and soil ) Plant other seeds the same way and see which ones grow the fastest.
