Growing Plants

Two posts in one day! Go me!

In April we decided to have our boys plant seeds as part of our Spring theme. We used potting soil, random wildflower seeds we somehow acquired, and Breyer's 100 calorie yogurt cups.



I took craft sticks/popsicle sticks, stuck a foam flower sticker to the end, and wrote everyone's names on the flowers to stick in so we knew whose was whose (because believe me, they asked!) We did this on a Thursday and by Monday morning we had sprouts! And we really weren't expecting anything to happen. Every other day we handed out the plants and the boys counted how many plants they had. After the first time the answers started becoming 100, 2 million, too many, 1001 (I really got this response from one of them!) but they still were actively looking and understanding their plants.

Heather and I decided to send the plants home as Mother's Day presents so we replanted them in cheep colored plastic cups from Wal-Mart. The moms really enjoyed them and the boys were proud of what they had done!
