What's Included...

naturalist Package

Seed Planting Activity

Involving little ones in the care of plants helps to inspire a love of nature and a sense of accomplishment as they watch their seeds sprout into beautiful plants. First students glue cat or bat embellishments to popsicle sticks which will be secured in their potted plant. Next, students will learn how to properly plant their seeds and care for a cat grass plant at home.

*If cared for properly, cat grass can grow as large as what we have pictured.

Approx. 30 minutes
