Wow- the beans sprouted within 3 days!For last week's Activity Day Girls, we planted seeds in aluminum cans. We also had a short lesson on Faith is like a Seed. Here are the results, and my daughter's plant above (only a week later!)
Adults should do the holesWe used 16 oz. cans. If they have a ridge on the bottom, you can use a bottle opener/can piercer to poke it. If not, just use an ice pick and hammer. I used the cheapest dirt at Walmart- less than $1 per small bag. We used yogurt or sour cream lids as water dishes/catchers. Water it a little everyday to keep the dirt moist until the seeds pop up. My daughter and I kept ours inside by a sunny bathroom window that tends to be very warm (almost like a greenhouse).

Cut just below the upper word 'grow'. It folds down over the popsicle stick and then tape/glue.
Happy Earth Day!
