She used a regular binder and let the kids go to town with old seed catalogs, picking out awesome photos (aren't they just the best?!) to use. After things were glued down they started to fill the pages by keeping track of how long it takes seeds to germinate, what the sprouted plants looks like (go-go-Gadget drawing skills!) and the dates they were harvested on. Each child picked their own fruits and veggies to be in charge of and keep constant watch over.
We love the idea of adding a bit of science and fun observation added to the normal garden responsibilities. Make sure to check out more over at Our Hartbeat for more details on the process and other great photos of kids getting down and dirty with their chosen plants.
Thanks Annalea, Lua and Gia!
