Wonderful works of nature
The children at The Willows Day Care planted pumpkin seeds and experienced the wonderful works of nature. The exciting process, divided in four stages, started in April already when we had to plant the seeds. During the following months, the little ones enjoyed watering the plants and learning about how they grow to produce pumpkins. Now that the pumpkins have been harvested, we cannot wait to find out how they taste...!

Four stages
The four stages were as following:

  • Stage 1: The children planted seeds in so-called ‘starting trays’;
  • Stage 2: During the last week of April as our seeds had begun to grow beautifully in their starting trays, we transferred the plants to our vegetable patches in the garden;
  • Stage 3: Throughout the summer months we have enjoyed going out to check how our plants were growing and watering them regularly;
  • Stage 4: Finally, our plants have grown and our pumpkins are ready to harvest! We can’t wait to find out how they taste!
