We made our first foray into “science”-type activities at home. You know, beyond cooking and baking and gravity. Toddlers are excellent specimens in the basics of gravity.
I set up a seed germination experiment for the girls one Sunday afternoon and photographed the process. They are 6 and 3 1/2. It was age-appropriate for both of them.
We used this pictorial instruction sheet from Tiny Peasant. Link is right below the numbered instructions. The instructions aren’t necessary, but I found that my 6 year old was able to work at her own speed following the pictures.
The kids loved this little experiment. They were so excited to open each bag and see what had happened to their seeds. We let one bag of seeds go a few days longer to see what would happen. They grew bigger, so double the fun.
Overall a fun, quick activity for the kids. It was so enjoyable, they wanted to do the experiment again. So we did!
