Forcing Bulbs in Vases- Tutorial

Forcing bulbs in vases tutorial

 

Now that spring time is here, you might be looking for season inspired activities to do with kids. Forcing bulbs in vases is a great experiment the little curious minds will appreciate. They would love to start the process, watch the bulbs grow and take notes about it.

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!

Forcing bulbs in water and rocks in a bulb forcing vase is a fun activity for kids that you should try this year. It is a great educational experience at the same time, strikingly simple as we let nature takes its course with the growth of the bulbs.

    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.
