Toddler Tuesday - Project Cress
This week for Toddler Tuesday Max and I decided to celebrate the start of spring with a little nature project. Inspired by Tamara from One Craftee Mumma, we did our own little 'project cress'.
It was super simple and I was really impressed by how easily Max was able to do all the steps of the activity on his own with just verbal instructions from me.
All you need to get started is:
- an egg carton
- cotton wool
- cress seeds
- gorgeous queensland spring sunshine is optional :)
We started out by filling each spot in our egg carton with some cotton wool and then Max carefully soaked each piece with water (using our high-tech homemade watering can).
Then Max sprinkled the cress seeds onto the cotton wool (after I convinced him not to throw them across the yard like the 'cross mumma' in Jack and the Beanstalk!).
And now we wait... The seed packet suggested keeping the carton somewhere dark until they start to sprout, so I have them up in the top of the pantry. If all goes well we should see some progress as soon as tomorrow and will hopefully have a progress report for next weeks Toddler Tuesday post.
