Nature Study with Little Ones
For this weeks nature study I wanted to do something "fallish", so I thought it would be interesting to explore bulbs in more depth, as we had just planted some in order to observe and enjoy next spring. I had some extra daffodil bulbs that I had gotten through propagation, for Anna to examine; but.... what to do about the babies? Well, bulbs and dirt go together, so I filled a few of their stacking cups up with dirt and tucked a few bulbs in for them to find, and they were thrilled. Thankfully we were able to do this nature study out side!
Abriel is intently poking her dirt, while Samuel seems more interested in broadcasting it around. I don't think either of them noticed the bulbs hidden in the dirt, so I probably should have hidden something like acorns, which they might have had some intrest in.
