The kids got a little out of control a while ago with our beans-and-rice sensory box. The box stays on the patio and the beans and rice are supposed to stay in the box. On this day, handfuls got thrown all about and some landed on the grass.
Today we noticed that they had sprouted and grown! It is so cool to look at and kind of mind-blowing that they grew so fast (well, honestly, we hadn't been on the grass much lately so just hadn't noticed-not sure when exactly the seeds were sown.)
It was great to have an impromptu, hands-on, real-life science lesson.
