Making a sunflower garden

In the spring the kids planted a sunflower garden.  They went outside to find sticks.  They used the sticks to dig holes for the seeds.  Everyone picked several spots and planted their sunflower seeds.  Then we waited...and waited, and waited.  The sunflowers have come up and are growing so fast now!  It shouldn't be much longer until we have some big yellow sunflowers in the garden. 

Finding the perfect stick...

Making holes for the seeds with the sticks.

Putting seeds in the holes.

Lightly covering the seeds with soil.

Wow!  Our growing garden.
