A Sunflower House with Time for Me kids!

A Sunflower House with Time for Me kids!IMG_3153.JPG

When working with the smallest helpers in the garden, I love to pull out the largest seeds that grow the tallest plants!  Of course, that would be Mammoth Sunflowers!  The Time For Me preschool kids came out with their teachers Elise and Gracie to see the garden while the plants are still small.  Check out our baby broccoli heads!  

We read the story A Sunflower House by Eve Bunting.  Then we made a sunflower craft followed by the planting of a sunflower house in the corner of our garden.  We planted a variety of sunflower seeds but made sure to spread out the mammoth variety that may get to 12 feet tall!  It will be fun for these kids to visit again to watch the sunflower house grow tall!  We hope to use it as a shady place for a snack in August!  Thanks for your visit to the garden!  Kathy Luoma,MG
