Floral Arrangement--Hyacinths, usually available at floral shops in December, offer a break from traditional poinsettias. Display a single hyacinth in a glass cylinder that's slightly taller than the bloom. Stabilize the stem in glass marbles. Add water.
Wear an old sock over your shoe. Go for a nature walk. Remove sock, spritz with water put into a ziploc bag. Hang the bag in a window for 2 weeks....watch what GROWS! Very cool! Also check out Mrs. Drake's webpage for science resources. It's a GOLDMINE!
