I have been meaning to post these for a while now. We love to have the children do many of the things that we did as children and this simple and fun project is timeless and also well worth the wait. It is also a test of patience as some sets can take up to a few days depending on size.
You can find these "magic" grow capsules at many novelty shops worldwide.
Warning now, the capsules are small and should most definitely be kept away from little ones. Our youngest was only able to observe this project from afar.
Plop the capsules in water and watch them grow, baby grow as my eight year old says. The photos really are self-explanatory and were taken by our five year old who was until just a bit ago upset with me for not posting his project earlier. So sorry, son.
