For this activity we talked about how a seed needs to be taken care of to make a beautiful plant. We discussed what the seed needs: sunlight, soil, water. The little seed starts out small but it can grow to be a plant hundreds of times bigger than the littel seed started out. We compared that to how our knowledge and faith needs to be cared for to grow a beautiful testimony.
The girls filled empty egg cartons with soil and planted different kinds of seeds in the mini-pots. I told the girls that once the seeds had sprouted well, that they could transplant the little seedlings into a regular pot. The little pots can easily be scooped out with a spoon when the plants are ready to be transplanted.
