Super Surprising Spring
If you live on the East Coast, you are experiencing winter and spring battle it out. Winter won’t give up, but spring won’t either (I promise)! Here’s a wactivity that proves the power of spring (& life & mother nature & all sorts of cool stuff).
What you need:
~ Some seeds (we used broccoli seeds and chia seeds)
~ Sponges (we used new ones, but I wonder if old ones would work too)
~ a Dish to set them in and some water in a spray bottle
~ a Sunny window
~ one excited and patient Wactivity-er!
What to do:
~ Dampen your sponges (not soaking, not dry, somewhere in between) and put them in your dish. We used a glass baking dish.
~ Put one kind of seed on each sponge (if you are using chia seeds, get them wet in a little bowl first, then spread the chia/water/seed goo on the sponge)
~ Use a spray bottle to give the little seeds a shower that soaks ’em pretty well.
~ Set the dish in a sunny window.
~ Every day, be sure to keep those seeds & sponges damp. Every night, consider covering the dish to create a cozy, greenhouse effect.
~ Watch, wait and be AMAZED! Those seeds will sprout without soil!
If spring can come to a sponge, surely it will come to all of us too. Why Not?!
