This half term's Creative Home Work is "Science: It's A Jungle Out There".
Jack has chosen to make a model of a plant (either a rose or bean stalk, he hasn't chosen which yet), take some photos of Spring flowers, and grow something!
This weekend we started to grow a plant!
We only have a few weeks to grow something, and (since despite Hubby being a garden centre nursery man in his past, and in his heart, keeping plants alive is NOT a strong point of this family) I've been out and bought some CRESS SEEDS! My reasoning? They grow within a week! They are EASY to grow! If we kill them we have time to try again (and plenty of seeds). If we DON'T kill them we can actually EAT some!
Saturday afternoon we planted our first lot of cress seeds and sat them on the kitchen window along with the cacti and jade plants (the only plants I haven't killed!)
We're taking photos each day of their progress and making a little video too of how we do (which I'll share at some point).
Wish us luck! I'm the kind of person that can manage to kill spider plants!
Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.
You can also go to my page, hover over the “liked” button and select get notifications. Then you will see my posts and status updates in your notifications. Mumma Walker on Facebook
