How to Grow a Bean Passive Program (Printable!)

Here at the children’s department of Fondulac District Library, we take turns preparing passive programs each month. I loved all the bean growing/greenhouse DIYs I saw on Pinterest, so I drew up my own version for the kids to enjoy and for any teacher, librarian, parent or grandparent to share (the free printable can be accessed at the bottom of this post)!

Each passive program contained a coloring page, a ziplock bag to watch the germination through, three cotton balls, five soybean seeds, and a copy of the instructions. Most of the kids chose to color at the library and add the water at home (less cleanup!). 😉

One little girl and her grandma were kind enough to update us on their bean’s progress once it outgrew the greenhouse. SO SWEET YOU GUYS. 😢😊
