We made a big batch of homemade guacamole yesterday, so I saved the 4 avocado seeds in hopes of trying to grow our own avocado houseplants. I figure it will make for a great hands-on, FREE science lesson for Luke (age 4) and Lilah (age 2) to watch the roots and stem start to grow from the seed. We are all about thrifty preschool lessons! 🙂
Here is the website with the directions for what to do. It’s really simple and all you need are an avocado seed, toothpicks, a glass, and water. We didn’t have toothpicks, so we broke off wooden skewers and used those instead.

We just started ours today, so I’ll post again when — if!!! — they start to grow! If they don’t grow, we’ll just buy more avocados and try again. We LOVE guacamole!! 🙂
