Got Kids? Try a Pet PlantPosted: April 3, 2020
Do you remember Tamagotchi, a virtual pet that kids carried around and had to care for it? Well, how about a Pet Plant? I was a volunteer at the elementary school’s Garden Club and this was one of our projects. It would be a great time to start a Pet Plant and it is fun for kids and adults.
Most of the items to make it are probably already in you home. Start with a small bottle such as the cookie sprinkles one I used here. Plastic is best for kids.
Add something that will stay wet like a cotton ball or wadded up paper towel.
If you would like to wear it, tie on a long string (use your judgement for your child) or just carry it from place to place as you move around.
Lima beans are the classic seeds, but use whatever kind of seed you may have. Make sure it stays damp and watch your Pet Plant grow.
Give it a name.
As your Pet Plant gets big, take off the lid and eventually plant it in soil.
*Of course, seed germination is a great science project.
