The Special Start preschoolers planted an amaryllis bulb last week. After investigating the bulb and noticing its roots, the kids painted their own version. Using a shoebox and marbles, the preschoolers dipped the marbles in paint and rolled the marbles on paper in the box. This week, the kids predicted what they think the flower will look like when it blooms. They chose from a variety of shapes and colors of flower petals. We will also be charting the plant’s growth in the next few weeks!
