What We Read:
Plants Feed Me is a cute, informative book about all the different plants and plant parts we eat. It’s a great introduction to how plants grow and how we use them in our everyday lives.
Plant a Kiss is about a little girl who, as you might expect, plants a kiss. She cares for it, waits for it to grow, and decides to share it with her friends and everyone she meets.
What We Said:
“Touch Your Nose”
What We Did:
We planted grass today! I passed out plastic cups and markers for the kids to decorate their cups with. I explained to the kids that because the markers were washable, the color would wear off, but they could always color it again. I went around with a permanent marker and drew smiley faces on the cups.
Once we were done coloring and decorating, we gathered around a table and took turns scooping potting soil in our cups until they were about half full. Then everybody added a pinch of grass seed, and I poured a little water to get the soil wet. Everybody took their planted grass home in a paper bag.
