“In three words I can sum up everything I learned about life: it goes on.”
No matter how many times I do this activity, whether it is with toddlers or grown-ups, I am always in awe of the power and determination of the seed to bring forth new life. Witnessing the process of the radicle breaking through the seed coat, taking root and flourishing gives you the opportunity to explore the cycle of life with your children.
We simply folded and put a few damp paper towels in a zip lock bag, added a bean seed and taped it to our sliding glass. On the same day we also planted some bean seeds in a pot on our deck. The girls watered them everyday and loved watching nature run its course.
Thank you to Full Circle for the inspiring quote.
