How To Grow Sunflowers

Sunflowers are so easy to grow and brighten up any garden or apartment balcony. Little fingers will love seeing the magic of seeds becoming flowering plants right in front of their eyes.

What you need:

A disposable cup per child
5 cotton wool balls per cup
A spoonful of sunflower seeds
(a little tip - buy a large bag from the bird food isle in the supermarket - this will be much more economical than buying a small packet from a nursery)

Let the children decorate their disposable cup so that they know which one is theirs. Place the cotton wool balls in the bottom of the cup and sprinkle over the seeds.

Add a little bit of water to each cup and place in a sunny position. Window sills are ideal. Extra water needs to be added every couple of days.

Within a week kids will see the first sprouts shoot. It's a great idea to take photos of the transformation and make a collage at the end as a keepsake.

After another couple of weeks the shoots will have turned into seedlings and will be taller than the sides of the cup.

Now it is time to find a sunny spot in the garden to plant your seedlings. They are very hardy so will virtually grow anywhere, including in a pot on the balcony.

Depending on the season that you first start the project it can take from 2 - 4 months to see the bright sunflowers emerge.
