Jack’s Beanstalks

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!)IMG_5000


Next, the kiddos made castle sticks for their beanstalks to climb!


Here are a bunch of them in the greenhouse. 🙂IMG_5002

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).Screen Shot 2013-05-05 at 8.34.38 PM

Then I used the cloud (at the end of the rainbow on the bottom row) from the Simply Charmed cartridge.  Screen Shot 2013-05-05 at 8.38.15 PM

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! 🙂
