Day 9 Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head

Time for a little Science--with potatos! First step: getting all the supplies ready. We need a regular potato, 1 sweet potato, 2 mugs to put them in, toothpics to keep them sturdy, googly eyes, glitter glue, cotton balls, water, and a knife.

Here are our potatos ready in their cups. The regular potato got the top cut off and scooped out a bit and wet cotton balls were placed inside.

After we decorated them, it was time to plant radish seeds within the wet cotton balls of the regular potato (aka Mr. Potato Head. Mrs. Potato Head was obviously the SWEET potato. :D )

Here's a closer look at the top with the seeds. Mrs. Potato Head simply got water poured in the mug around her.

Now they are placed in the sun and the waiting begins. Hopefully they will both sprout their own hair. Check back for an update in a week or so.
