I have a big box of these packing peanuts. They work great for crafts if you just stick them in a litte water
The sand table is filled with top soil, flowers, pots, shovels, gloves etc. Next week I will add seeds.
We learned about a flower and how it grows. First you have dirt, then plant a seed. The seed grows roots the roots grow a stem and the stem grows a flower.
What better way to end the week than to paint with mud. The kids shoveled dirt onto their wax paper, added water from the water can and used paintbrushes to squish it all around. At first they were hesitant but wow what a mess we made with this project.

Can you imagine how long this took? Everyone had to wash their hands twice first green stem, then colorful flower.
