A few weeks ago my son wasn't feeling well enough to go anywhere, but he was going stir crazy sitting on the couch so we decided to plant seeds! It was great time for it, it was a little chilly outside, but it was sunny and nice. We got all of the stuff together and set up a planting station for when he woke up from nap.
He was thrilled when he woke up and saw it all ready to go. We worked on filling the holes halfway to leave room for the seeds.
This gave him a chance to practice measuring because he tried a measuring cup and it filled it all the way up, but a tablespoon worked perfect. After he filled it part way he put the seeds in and filled it the rest of the way with soil.
We also quickly learned that potting soil will not go through a funnel because of the sticks mixed in. It was a lot of fun and we even made our own labels.
We had some popsicle sticks, glue, and the pack that the seeds came in. We cut the name off of the pack and glued it to the sticks and we had labels! He has been watering his seedlings with his new container that we made, and watching them grow.
