Bean Sprouting Activity for Kids
Have fun sprouting your own beans and learn about botany at the same time!
Step 1: Put the dry beans in a damp paper towel and put it all inside the jar.
Step 2: My kids didn’t believe me that beans would sprout into plants. So here we are checking their bean sprouting activity after three days.
Step 3: One week later we had fully sprouted beans! After we examined them for awhile, I had my preschool kids take some dry beans and glue into a paper with their sight words written on it. They had fun and it was great for fine motor skills.
Let kids’ imaginations run wild with these fun and educational science projects! We have created a Botany Discovery Box that will inspire your pint-sized botanist with creative STEAM science and art projects. Through hands-on activities, our Botany Box teaches kids how plants work, from the tiniest seeds to the tallest trees. The Botany Box includes supplies and instructions for four amazing projects: A DIY Plant Press, a Botanist Kit, an Herbarium, and a Plant Printmaking Kit.
