When I went to visit my sister a few weeks ago in Blacksburg Virginia, she and my nephew CJ gave me a bookmark that they got from Ihop. I’m sure you have seen the commercials for it.
Here’s the bookmark minus the attached seed thingie that my grandbaby MayMay already pulled off.
MayMay was so excited to get to plant this tree. But first we had to put it in water and let it soak for 24 hours. She must have asked a dozen times if it was time to plant the tree yet.
Finally it was time to plant!
Wow! May actually emptied a good sized bag of dirt all by herself. She loved feeling like a big girl by doing this all on her own.
Next she planted her seed.
Then she watered her seeds.
What fun! She played in dirt and didn’t even get in trouble for doing it! Of course that was also a problem. After she was done, she still kept wanting to dig up the seeds and root around in the dirt. I had to put the planter up high to keep her out of it.
I have no idea what kind of tree this really will be. Of course MayMay is assuming it will look like one of those fluffy, pastel trees in The Lorax. Hope she isn’t too disappointed when it turns out to be just an ordinary green tree.
