watching a miracle ~ up close!

even though I'm all grown up now, i sometimes want to dig up the seeds I've planted to see how they are coming along. (what are they doing down there, anyway?)

I'm sure that A and B are equally as curious.

this morning we did a quick little project so that they can see the miracle that happens every time we plant seeds.

first, i used a wide mouth pint jar, and some leftover cotton batting that i had from a quilt I'm working on. i rolled up the batting neatly, and put it into the jar.

after i soaking the batting with water, i helped the girls push bean seeds down inside the jar- abut 1 ½" down.

we put the lid on (just until they sprout) and set it on the kitchen windowsill.

B was proud to tell M what they had done. now, we'll all have to wait patiently!

That is so cool! We will have to try it. Although I have a hard time getting any seeds to sprout around here. :)

Thanks so much for the camping tips. Great ideas!!! If you have any more, please feel free to share them.

I especially loved the S'mores idea.
And the 5 gallon water container would be very handy also!
