How to Bring Bulbs to Life

Grow a gorgeous wintertime bouquet just in time for the holidays! For this project you'll simply plop a few bulbs into a container and add water. Let your kids help choose the perfect colors and decorate the pot to give as a holiday gift to a favorite teacher. They'll love watching the sprouts emerge. Start new bulbs every 10 days for a continuous supply of fresh-as-spring flowers all winter long.
