It is not quite spring, but we all wish it was Right? So just in case you are wondering what to do with your garden or if you do not have one how to get your toddlers and preschoolers to understand gardening with no soil around… I present you a Potato.
Yes a simple potato is all you need to teach your kids about gardening and food. It would help if it was an older potato or few, with some bumps coming out of it. Enough bumps that may make you skip it in your next mashed potato recipe.
All you have to do is place it in a glass container, preferably helped up by some toothpicks. Unless you have other contraptions.
Well technically it does not even need to be glass. Anything you have that can hold water, recyclable or not will do.
Place in a water and wait
or more. In all reality all these were placed in water at the same time, meaning 5 weeks ago. I am not sure what made some grow faster then others. I think our indoor cat had something to do with it, but that is another story after all.
Before putting them in a soil we will have a little discussion about potatoes, roots and stems. What do you think?
