Bring a favourite fairytale to life by growing your very own ‘beanstalks’. Kids will love hearing the story of Jack planting magic beans that grew overnight and relating it to the beans you plant in our Watch Me Grow Kits. They will be enthralled learning about plant growth, being involved with watering them, and watching them transform every day.
Use as a science experience. Get each child to be a part of the process, one child can add the water another the seeds and soil. Children can learn to be patient and commit to a project which develops over time.
Take the children out to the garden and find plants in all different stages of growth, help the children to learn and discover the process of growing something and the requirements and commitment involved in gardening. Teach the children about sustainable living and growing their own food, maybe have them pick some ripe vegetables and try eating them to show the full process and results of growing things.
Teaches responsibility from caring for and tending to the plants, understanding the life cycle of plants, self-confidence from growing the plant and making it survive. Appreciation of nature, reasoning and discovery, physical activity in a fun environment, working collaboratively, creativity, curiosity. Creates a sense of belonging, sustainability especially if the seedling is from a vegetable and reused. Children are tactile and sensory learners. Encourages healthy eating habits.
The kit is reusable and includes timber stands, test tubes, water droppers, cotton buds & snow pea beans. Place in a well-lit area, out of direct sunlight, to achieve maximum results. Once the beans have sprouted they can be transferred to a larger pot or garden bed. The stands can also be painted and/or decorated if desired.
