Growing grass is nothing special, right? Well, when you fill your grass with little animals, all of a sudden growing grass becomes VERY fun! Make your own African playscape with this experiment!
Supplies: grass seed, potting soil, aluminum pan, rocks, spray bottle, and african animals.
Step one: Fill bottom of the aluminum pan with rocks for drainage. We just collected some from outside.
Step two: Put a layer of potting soil on top of the rocks.
Step three: Lay grass seed on the soil and cover with another thin layer of soil.
Step four: put the pan in front of the window. This is a perfect time to teach your child about what a plant needs to grow…sunlight and water. We filled the spray bottle with water and when it was dry we would give it a squirt!
Step five: Add the animals to the grassland! We got books from the library about Africa and the types of animals and ecosystems located there. This is a great learning opportunity that is fun and so easy!
