Last spring Dani and Nico planted some seeds.
The seeds grew into seedlings and we found a nice spot for them in our backyard. As they grew into plants, the kids observed their growth.
Below, Dani is standing against one of the plants, just realizing it’s now taller than she is.
Wow, it’s much taller now!
A few days later, the plants were about 7 feet tall and the flowers began to bloom.
And after we got to see this beautiful flower unfolding in our own backyard, we decided to make our own.
Here is Dani holding her craft sunflower she cut from a paper plate.
Planting sunflowers was indeed a very engaging activity and a great lesson on plant growth. I intend to follow up with a lesson on the sunflower life cycle.
