First , we ran the slowest race ever!

We then talked about the definition of patience and God's awesome patience with us. (1 John 4:16 ,1 Corinthians 13:4 , Exodus 34:6)

We also told the story of Heidi, a little girl who discovered God's timing was better than her own.

PATIENCE PLANTERS

You will need:

Clean yogurt container

plastic spoon

Sharp nail

lighter

potting soil

seeds

newspapers

scissors

stickers, glitter, paint, etc

spray bottle

OPTIONAL: pencil, plastic wrap, rubber band

Step 1. Cover work area with newspaper!

Step 2. Eat some yummy yogurt!

Step 3. Wash out your cup and spoon with hot soapy water, make sure you rinse all the soap off!

Step 4. Have a grown up helper get the tip of the nail hot to make three small holes in the bottom of your planter, these will be used for drainage.

Step 5. Remove the label and paint or decorate your planter

Step 6. Using your spoon, CAREFULLY add potting soil to planters, don't pack dirt down too tightly.

Step 7. Poke a hole in the center of each planter and add seeds.

Step 8. Spray soil with water.

Step 9. To transport home, cover with plastic wrap and secure with rubber band. Poke holes in the plastic wrap with a pencil, so your plant can "breathe". Make sure you remove the wrap and rubber band as soon as your little plant is safely home.

Step 10. Set your planter in a windowsill or other sunny spot, make sure your plant gets water and BE PATIENT as you watch your plant grow!

NOTE: your plant will eventually outgrow your planter, once this happens, you can move it to a nice spot outside, or into a bigger pot, you can then reuse your planter to start a new plant, or wipe it out and use it for pencils, paper clips, etc.
