Playgroup - The Carrot Seed

Our first day back at playgroup for the new term!  Today we read The Carrot Seed and The Enormous Turnip.  We had quite an interesting discussion on what we could make with all those giant vegetable, none of which sounded very appetizing!!  Then we headed off to do our activities.

We had fun making our own gardens with our playdough and some home-grown herbs and flowers.

There was lots of digging and sorting in our sensory box.  It was made with lots of sunflowers seeds as a filler and then miniature flowers and insects to plant and find.

We made some beautiful pictures with our vegetable printing.

Then we "planted" some vegetables and buried them in the dirt!

Of course a garden day wouldn't be complete without planting our own seeds to take home and grow.  Hopefully we will have some sunflower seedlings to plant when it starts to warm up!!

And we were lucky to have a visit after playgroup from our brand new cousin, Seth.  Lots of cuddles all around!!
