I love this fun product from Growums!*
We got on the website with the code that they give to you so you can register your project. They send you e-mail notifications regarding the steps that you should be taking with your plants. The website has video information with fun vegetable characters and games that educate about plants and gardening. While we followed the directions for starting our seeds, we made note of the different sizes and shapes of the seeds as we worked. We also decided that it would be cool to tape each seed to a sheet of paper and then write it's seed name on it. (We talked about the diversity of God's creation and the thought that He put into the making of every seed!) Then once it began to sprout, Sarah would write the date it sprouted beside it's seed. It was neat to see the different times each seed took to germinate and begin to push through the dirt. Each day Sarah would water and note any changes on her sheet. We are now getting ready to plant them into some pots and the garden (some of the vegetables are more spring -so I am going to use a pot on the porch for those, to control their heat/light exposure, as it gets HOT in NC in the summer and I don't think they would make it in the garden because we started late).
Even if you didn't want to plant them into a garden or do anything further with them once they sprouted, it's still a neat project and fun learning experience for the kids to do. The kits are inexpensive at $4 (plus shipping) on sale at Amazon. I recommend them for sure!
