Bean Experiments and Two Year Olds

Last week Jenna(2.5) and I made seed tape and also created a little bean experiment on our sliding glass door using a Ziploc bag, paper towels, water, peas and beans. This is what our bag looks like now:

The main concept I am trying to help Jenna understand for herself is that plants come from seeds.  What is cool about this experiment is that you can actually see the little plant and root coming out of the bean seed.

Of course, when I asked Jenna where plants come from while she was holding the bean in her hand she answered “Plants come from the ground.” Okay… so this teachable moment needs some repetition. 🙂

I bagged up all the seeds, taped them to the window again, and I am going to ask Jenna the same question again tomorrow!
