Forcing Bulbs with Children

Forcing bulbs with children


Let me introduce to everyone, my blogger friend Sharmila from Sharma’s Outlet.  I am a fan of her projects . She details them in great length  in her blog which includes  sewing, knitting, gardening, repurposing and tons of fun activities that you could do with your kids. Sharmila is a lover of all things antique and she is also fond of travelling. She was kind enough to share one of her projects-a fun kids activity- with my readers and I am thankful to her for that! If you like to know more about Sharmila, please feel to stop by at her place!

Hi! I am Sharmila. I am a mom, student, teacher, and entrepreneur; however, I love homemade stuff and always strive to make things from scratch. 

Sharmila I have two kids with a substantial age gap, but we enjoy them with much love. I got married to my best friend from school and decided to raise our family away from Sri Lanka. We live in MA, I love about raising my family and all fun projects we try to accomplish together. 



Forcing Bulbs ( Fun Activity to do with your Kids!)

This is one of many fun activities you can plan with your child to do on any fall day, but it is best to plan this ahead so can have paper whites blooms for holidays. I have had success with this project and love it!

 What you need 

A clear vase




 Arrange the rocks in side the vase, place the bulbs and add water, and watch them grow. This is an ideal activity to keep track of how fast the bulbs grow, note any changers in bulbs, watch the outer skin, and many more.

This year we are simply observing, we might consider taking notes after few weeks.

 hope this works,

Thank you,

    Oh I remember doing a similar experiment as a child for a school project, and I had to watch and jot down notes at home over the weeks. What fun memories this brings back now…

    It’s a neat hands on experience for kids! If I would have thought of this sooner, we could have maybe incorporated this into a science fair project!

    It really is fun to watch these bulbs grow. We have done this in the past for homeschool science.
