We're learning about germination in Science and these little seed bags are a fun and easy experiment.
two baggies, 3-5 different types of seeds, 2 paper towels and a stapler.
Fold the paper towel in half twice to fit into the baggie snugly. Staple horizontally across the baggies about 2 inches from the bottom. (One staple for each seed.) Place a seed over each staple, keep in mind that it doesn't have to be touching the staple. Slowly add water to the paper towel until completely damp with no left over water in the bottom of the bags. What you are doing here is making two identical bags. Put one in a dark cool place and one in a warm sunny window. Keep a chart to record the growth. Here are pics of our sunny bag on day 8.
