Balloon Plants

Balloon Plants!

We can't wait to try this fun experiment from Craftbits. I've been meaning to do it with the kids for years and always get sidetracked. I'll post pictures if we finally get it done. If you do, please leave a comment and link to how it goes. :)


 1 balloon
 1/2 cup of dirt
 1/4 cup of water
 radish or pea Seeds


Take the balloon and hold it by the neck.  Use a funnel to slowly push the dirt into the balloon, then add the water and the seeds.

Nip the neck of the balloon and clean off the opening so that you can blow it up.

Very carefully blow up the balloon till it is full size then tie off the neck and secure.

Hang your balloon plant in a window sill and it will start growing.

Make sure you DO NOT use potting mix as this is toxic to inhale.
