~ glass jar, wide mouth works best
~ dark paper (dark cardstock or construction paper with cardstock backing
~ seeds, this was a Lima bean, nice and big
~ paper towels
~ bowl of water
Cut the paper so it's the same size as the sides of the jar.
Roll the paper and insert in jar
Move the paper a bit to allow the child to drop the seed into the jar, between the glass and the paper
It's good to allow an inch of water to stay on the bottom. Keep paper towels moist and change if necessary.
Watch what happens!
after 7 days
