Let the wild rumpus start!

Fran's Flower

Scott Bahlmann


Fran finds a pot with a little seedling sprouting, and decides she'll take care of it!

(I had an inverted paper cup under the felt 'soil' both of which were hot glued to the pot. The paper cup has a hole poked in the top for the stem to fit in later, the sprout is a pipe cleaner with a twisted bottom which sits on top of the cup.)


Fran feeds the seedling her favorite foods! 'What doesn't loves cookies?'

(I just used foods that I have on hand, this was the kids favorite part. They were very good at knowing the plants don't like pancakes.)


Finally Fran gets fed up, and tosses the plant outside, where the rain and sun can work their magic.

(I set the pot behind my flannel board, and swapped out the seedling for the grown flower between the rain and sun.)


Fran heads outside, and is excited to see that the seedling has flourished!

(It was a very fun part of the program. The kids were quite into it. This idea came from Recipes for Reading.)


(showing the 'guts' of my flower pot, you can also see the hole in the top of the cup where the big flower goes!)
