Children’s Grab & Go kit: Grow Your Own Beanstalk

Our 2020 Summer Reading craft programs will be via grab & go craft kits.

When you register for the craft, a bag with your name on it will be left on the curbside pick up table.

(To assure that all families get a chance to participate in our program, there will be a limit of 2 kits per family.)

This week, we will be offering a beanstalk growing project!



If you don’t get a chance to pick up a kit, you can try it for yourself at home!


  • 1 Skewer
  • Clear Plastic Cup
  • Pea Seed or Lima Bean
  • Soil


  1. Pour soil into a clear plastic cup and make a one inch deep hole with your finger.
  2. Place your seed in the hole and cover it up with soil.
  3. When watering, either sprinkle water or spray with a squirt bottle

(Make sure you place your growing beanstalk in an area with full sun!)

  1. Insert skewer into soil
  2. Now watch as your beanstalk grows!
