We had so much fun learning about Day 3 of God’s Creation! Here is the text to read with your child today:

As my brilliant-theologian-of-a-cousin brought to my attention, each new day of creation is dependent on the prior days of creation. Flowers, plants, and trees can’t grow without light (day 1), water (day 2), and air (day 2). Even on the third day, God had to create dry ground for the plants to grow before he created the plants. Days 1-3 are creating the environment for the rest of God’s creation! Big Brother and I enjoyed talking about how God had already created all the things the plants needed to grow!
|1. Use a spoon (or small shovel) to put the soil into the baseball card sleeve.|
|2. Put the suction cup hooks through the holes.|
|3. Hang on a window.|
|4. Place a straw in the center of one of the sleeve inserts.|
|5. Let your child carefully place the seeds into the straw. Tap the straw while taking it out to make sure all of the soil (and the seeds) come out before adding seeds to the next compartment.|
|6. Fill a medicine syringe with water (mine went to 1 tsp).|
|7. Let your child water each compartment each day (less/more depending on how much water the seed needs).|
|Enjoy watching the seeds germinate and sprout! You will eventually need to transfer the seeds to a larger pot once they have sprouted.
And it really does work! This picture was taken almost 2 weeks after we planted the seeds!
