Little Craft: twig trellis and beanstalks

Here’s a fun summer project that you can make for yourself or as a kid’s craft.
Assemble a plant trellis from twigs and moss. I used a glue gun to hold mine together.

Here’s the part that kids will love. For almost instant gratification, germinate beans to plant with your trellis.

I soaked my white beans between wet paper towels overnight and the roots were forming the next day.

 
Plant your beans in a pot with your trellis.

Put in a sunny location and watch your beans twine up the trellis in days.

Come back tomorrow for my Link Party.

Whatever you've been making - I'd love to see it.

  3. Just lovely! I guess I'm just a big kid, because I'd love to do something like this!

    Tell me, do the bean plants bear edible produce?

    Best,
