We did do a story, activity, and snack this month, it just didn't have any binding theme (but it was still fun!) I provided the activity this month, which I got the idea for out of The Kids' Nature Book we use for our science/nature activities. We planed Tulip bulbs in pots for the kids to take home and watch grow in the spring. We talked a little bit about the seasons. Which season do you see flowers blooming in? What season is it now? Do we usually see flowers blooming in the winter? We also learned a new term: bulb. The younger ones in the group got to practice counting to three (each child put three bulbs in their pot). Hopefully the bulbs will actually grow into pretty tulips in a few months!
Sadly, I completely forgot to take pictures during the meeting, but I took a few when we got home...
Trevor put his three tulip bulbs right in a row, with the tips poking out just like the direction said to do =)
Giving his tulips a good watering once we got home.
Any tulip experts out there? I've never planted a tulip bulb in my life, is there anything I should know so we can ensure we get some flowers?
