We gave A a little strawberry plant that I found in the dollar bin at Target for Valentine’s day. We haven’t had the chance to start the plant, so we did it this week and it was such a great activity and really pre-school friendly for A.
Here is the little plant:
It’s a little pot that comes with a growing medium and seeds. The basic instructions are on the inside of the label. You basically grow the soil, then add the sides then place it in a sunny spot and water daily. Once the plants get about three inches tall you transfer the plant to a bigger pot.
I let A set the plant on a chair in the kitchen for awhile then we moved it to the window above our kitchen sink to keep it from being knocked over. A loved this simple activity and is already anticipating yummy strawberries…let’s hope they grow!!
