We’ve been reading lots of different Jack and the Beanstalk versions this week and we finally decided that we needed to plant some beanstalks:
First we all got a cup and labeled them with our names…
Then we filled them 1/2 to 3/4 full of soil…
Then we dug holes with our fingers and planted the magic beans (beans that I’ve spray painted gold!)
Next, the kiddos made castle sticks for their beanstalks to climb!
Here are a bunch of them in the greenhouse. 🙂
I used my handy dandy Cricut machine to cut out the castles and clouds:
I used the Doodle Charms cartridge for the castle (it’s really a sand castle, but I had it cut out without the flag on top).
Then I used the cloud (at the end of the rainbow on the bottom row) from the Simply Charmed cartridge.
I used construction paper from school to cut out these cuties and I could get three castles from one 12×6 paper and three clouds from a 12×6 paper. It reminded me that it was time for a new blade! 🙂

This looks great, Kristen. What kind of beans do you use?
I use Lima beans or navy beans. Whatever is the cheapest! 🙂
