Let's Plant!


Gather egg cartons and remove the lids. Invite each child to fill a pocket of the egg carton with planting soil. Each child can then plant a bean seed in his or her pocket. Place the egg carton(s) in a sunny spot and have children water the seeds regularly. Chart each plant's growth. Follow up by having children draw pictures of their mature plants.
