Kindness Project: Planting Seeds

For our fourth week of kindness, we planted beans!

All of our story time books have an underlying theme of kindness. This week we read:

The Dandelion Seed, by Joseph Anthony

The Tiny Seed, by Eric Carle

Sunflower House, by Eve Bunting

The Carrot Seed, by Ruth Krauss

Sidewalk Flowers, by Jon Arno Lawson

Growing Vegetable Soup, by Lois Ehlert

If You Plant a Seed, by Kadir Nelson

Plant a Kiss, by Amy Krause Rosenthal

Planting beans was a fun experience (and very hands on, so not many pictures happened)!

The kids added soil to their cups, then picked their beans. They dug a little hole in the soil, then placed the beans in, covered them up, and watered them. Then they took them home to let them grow!

Next, we're continuing spreading kindness with Friendship Bracelets!
