Summer came early for us..it’s early spring but feels like mid-summer. This wonderfully warm weather had us planting some pumpkin seeds. All the children were involved in this beloved science activity, which got pretty messy. What’s dirt without children? As part of our commitment to recycle and reuse we used tins from beans, fruits, and other kitchen tins. This activity helped children take turns, use mathematics, learn about gardening and more importantly learn the science of growing plants with seeds. Happily, we were outdoors and the mess could be fixed with a water hose.
We planted these seeds in March and the plants emerged in late April. Each child got to take their own tin home. Hopefully, they will have pumpkins for Fall
