We are studying tubers and grasses. What better way than to make potato planters?
- Large potatoes
- Melon Baller
- Rye seeds
- Pipe cleaners
- Puff balls
- Googly eyes
- Potting soil
Hollow the potatoes with a melon baller the day before. This is best done by a teacher or volunteer. Mix the grass seeds with potting soil and water. The seeds will get a head start on germination.
Have the kids decorate the planters with the craft materials. There is no wrong way to make a potato sculpture.
Time for a haircut! Simply have the kids cut the grass with scissors. It will make your room smell like a fresh cut lawn.
