Activity Idea: Keep a simple log with the date to record the changes. Use your phone camera to record the progress and have kids draw pictures of the changes they see. Early school age kids can write about their observations. Preschoolers will enjoy dictating as you write what they see and say about it. Writing their words helps preschoolers see the connections between words we say and written language.
Ages: Prechoolers, Early School
