We are a sucker for crafts that open up conversations in preschool aged children and lead to discovery. That's why we love this fun craft that you can use to teach about growing, nurturing and mother nature! It won't take much time and effort, but we guarantee that your child will love it as much as the recipient!

Discussion Points:

  • "What does a plant need to grow?"
  • "What does your Mommy (or Grandma, etc) do for you that makes you grow big?"
  • "How can you help this seed grow big?"
  • "How can you help your Mommy out, since she helps you grow big?"
