Fun Spring Projects

Here are two simple fun spring projects that you might enjoy trying with your children during this spring season.  Both are easy, cost next to nothing, and use materials you probably already have at home!

seed projects

Both projects also involve seeds- so it would also be a great time to also review Creation in Genesis 1- specifically vs. 11-12   Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so.  And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. “

Discuss God’s design of seeds and plants, God’s kindness in giving us plants that give us good things to eat, provide beauty for us to see and smell….

 

Mr. Eggshell Project

taken from Character Concepts for Preschoolers Mom’s Guide

Cut the top off a boiled egg. Scoop out the insides and place the two halves of the eggshell in an egg carton. Draw a simple smiley face on each shell. Fill each eggshell with cotton balls. Sprinkle several seeds (alfalfa, watercress or grass seed). Try to evenly sprinkle seeds thinly over the cotton balls. Add a teaspoon of water to the shells. Put on a warm sunlit windowsill. Watch Mr Eggshell grow hair!!!!!!!!!!!!

Watch seeds grow!

Place a wet paper towel inside a Ziploc bag. Place a seed between the towel and bag so you can watch it as it enlarges with water and bursts into a plant and roots.
 

 

Enjoy the fun.
